Jelavic insists Man Utd would be hard to reject

Nikica Jelavic concedes that if Manchester United did come calling then it would be a very hard offer to reject. The Croatian striker has been loosely linked with the English champions in the past few weeks and says that if any sort of concrete interest was to come through then he would have to look at it.

However, he has made it clear that he is happy in Glasgow and that these links are merely rumours at the moment.

"Moving to another club? No, that's the last thing on my mind," Jelavic told Jutarnji List.

"I'm enjoying Scotland. My life is fantastic. I like being here as a footballer. The most important thing is I see that my family is happy too. So there's really no reason for me to move.

"Manchester United? Well, that would be of course very hard to reject. But I only read about Red Devils in newspapers.

"Of course I'm happy to be linked with such a great club, but I really don't know anything about this. Me and Walter Smith, who knows Alex Ferguson very well, joked about this stuff.

"He was telling me, that Fergie is building team for me to fit in. But in reality I doubt that he would talk with Ferguson about his players... But of course, if Manchester United make an offer for me then I couldn't stay in Scotland.

"United is a club you can't say no to. If Newcastle United call then I'd stay in Glasgow, no doubt."
