Stoke City boss rules out sale of Man United attacking target

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has ruled out the possible sale of Manchester United target Bojan Krkic during the current January window, Express reports.

The 25-year-old has been on very impressive form this season after returning from an injury which kept him sidelined for most of the previous campaign.

Apart from United, the former Barcelona star has also caught the eye of Premier League rivals Chelsea as well as Liverpool in recent months.

However, Hughes has reassured the fans that their star forward will not be leaving the Britannia Stadium amid speculation of a £10million buy-out clause in his current deal, which was eventually played down.

“There’s no clause, no intention or desire from us as a club or from Bojan and his people, in my view and from what conversations I’ve had,” he said.

“There’s a lot of mis-information out at the moment. It’s just a little bit of mischief making.”

His contract with the Potters will expire in 2018, so an offer much larger than his speculation buy-out clause will need to be tabled if the club is going to consider his sale.

Bojan has featured 16 times in the league this term, so far registering five goals while adding another one assist.
