Granqvist: ‘There is indeed interest from Man Utd’

Sweden captain Andreas Granqvist has spoken again of his willingness to join Manchester United.

The Helsingborgs centre-back has reportedly been identified as a potential short-term solution to Jose Mourinho’s defensive woes, and Granqvist discussed the rumours of United’s interest.

The 33-year-old has been asked again about the links with the Red Devils.

“There is indeed interest. This time there is a kernel of truth.”

“I am honoured that I am linked to such a large club, and if there is a concrete offer in January, then both the club and I will accept that, but that is currently not the case.”
