Stoke boss Pulis not surprised Begovic wanted by bigger clubs
And Stoke boss Pulis believes the Bosnian, 25, has been exceptional - despite Stoke's recent slump.
Begovic has another chance to impress Alex Ferguson tomorrow when Stoke host United.
Pulis said: "It doesn't surprise me that there are links with the top clubs.
"It's been a great season for him. He can only get better and better."
