Rangers flop Umar Sadiq has insisted that it’s “no accident” that he is being tracked by Manchester United.
The Nigerian bombed at Ibrox with just four appearances under his belt and no goals during his time on loan from Roma.
After having departed the Glasgow outfit and then the Italians, Sadiq has rebuilt his career at Partizan Belgrade.
So much so that Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly had the striker watched as recently as last week with a move to a potential bid after he scored 17 goals in 35 games for the Serbians this term.
Sadiq, though, reckons he has merited the interest from the Premier League giants after a good campaign.
“Manchester United’s interest is a big compliment for me as a player,” he told Belgrade daily Republika.
“But, believe me, nothing is accidental.
“Partizan have helped me a lot in my career.
“I found my way, and now I just follow what they ask of me.
“I think this is just the beginning of my success, and the motivation is there.
“We work thoroughly before every game.
“We don’t only talk about tactics and video analysis, but also human relationships.
“Whether it’s the manager, Savo Milosevic, or someone else from the coaching staff, they are always there for us.
“As for United, I think they were surprised by how we played against them in Belgrade.
“They put out their best team, which tells you how much respect they had.”
According to reports, AC Milan are also being linked with a potential move.
He is under contract until 2022 at Partizan.
