Augsburg fullback Philipp Max: Man Utd, Chelsea never made offers

Augsburg fullback Philipp Max admits he has big club ambitions.

The 24 year-old left-back was linked with a move to England over the summer, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham all mentioned as potential destinations.

Max told BILD: "I have to emphasise that I feel totally comfortable in Augsburg. It's not that I wanted to get away in the summer. This is exactly the right place for the next step in my development.

"But I'm also so honest to say that if there had been a concrete offer from a top European club, I would have dealt with it. But the situation did not turn up at all."
