‘I support Manchester United’: 17-goal striker admits big move is his dream

Bojan Miovski, the prolific striker of Aberdeen, has publicly admitted that he is a supporter of Manchester United and is holding out for a chance to join the Premier League. He is not the only promising young striker with a desire to play for the Red Devils, as Rasmus Hojlund also has aspirations of joining the club.

It is well-known that Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is seeking a high-level number nine striker this summer to address the team’s lack of consistent goal-scoring, apart from Marcus Rashford. This issue threatens to undermine the progress made by the club under ten Hag’s leadership.

Although Miovski may not be the top choice for Manchester United fans, his impressive record of 17 goals in 34 games for Aberdeen should not be overlooked.

Could Manchester United make a shock move for Aberdeen striker Bojan Miovski?

According to the Manchester Evening News, Ten Hag is extensively scouting for a new center-forward, considering a wide range of options, including Hojlund and Randal Kolo Muani, as well as high-profile players like Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen, and Goncalo Ramos.

In this context, the addition of Miovski would be unexpected, but given Ten Hag’s ability to bring out the best in talented young players, it is worth considering how much he could develop the striker, who has already outgrown the Scottish top-flight.

“Every player’s goal is to reach the highest level in football,” the North Macedonia international tells PopUp. “And the English Premier League attracts me. It is the most attractive and watched league in the world.

“I am a huge fan of Real Madrid. But from the English clubs, I follow and support Manchester United.

“My goal is to continue in a club from the best five leagues in Europe. If I could choose one, it would definitely be the English Premier League.”

‘A top, top player’

According to the Scottish Sun, Southampton is interested in signing Miovski during the summer transfer window. The Saints have a history of giving opportunities to Scottish Premiership players like Virgil van Dijk and Victor Wanyama, who later moved on to bigger clubs in the Premier League.

Joining a club like Southampton could be seen as an intermediary step for Miovski to eventually secure a move to a club of Manchester United’s stature, assuming he can replicate his Scottish Premiership form in the more competitive Premier League.

“He backs himself,” former Aberdeen coach Jim Goodwin said last year (Aberdeen Live). “He has big self belief and has confidence in his own ability.

“He’s a guy that has come from Eastern Europe; a new culture, language barriers, different style of football. For him to settle in as quickly as he has is a great credit to him.

“He is a top, top player.”
