Spanish midfielder admits being proud of Manchester United interest

Getafe midfielder Pablo Sarabia has welcomed potential interest from Manchester United but remained focused on his current season to try and avoid relegation at all cost.

The 21-year-old worked his way through Real Madrid’s academy and replaced Cristiano Ronaldo on his debut as a substitute in a UEFA Champions League group stage game back in 2010 but failed to progress any further at Madrid, so he has since moved to Getafe.

Although Sarabia has said he doesn’t want to take the let himself get distracted by the thought of any move away, he did admit that the Premier League is somewhere he wants to play in.

“My agent and I never talked about it [Manchester United’s interest] during the season because I think that is a way to unbalance a player and put them off their work”, Sarabia told Fichajes.

“What I have to do is stay focused on the goal, which is saving the team and whatever is talked about at the end of the season will be.

“Clearly, if the interest is there then you are proud for such a great club to notice you. But now I have to be focused here and give the maximum for Getafe, the club trusting in me.

“Of course [I’d like to play in the Premier League].

“It is a very attractive league.

“It is very physical, but in recent years we have seen several from the Spain team take that path. And why not try it one day?”

This season with Getafe, Sarabia has scored once and grabbed five assists in 16 total appearances for Getafe which is commendable given that they are only a couple of points off relegation.

Aged just 21, he’s got time on his hands to blossom as a footballer but will that be at Old Trafford with Manchester United or not?
