It has been reported today that both Chelsea and Arsenal both had scouts watching the Serbian star Milos Krasic when he played for CSKA Moscow in the 3-3 draw with Man Utd last month, and today his agent Dejan Joksimovic has admitted that he expects the 25 year-old to move to the Premiership in January.
“I think that if Krasic leaves CSKA in January, he is 90 per cent likely to go to England,” said .
When asked if it was CSKA’s Champions League opponents, Man Utd, that had shown interest, he replied: “Manchester United? There are three or four big English clubs, with important financial resources, interested in him.”
Both AC Milan and Inter Milan have already been recently associated with Krasic, but Joksimovic thinks it would be difficult for them to buy in January.
“I don’t know anything about Inter while I heard something about AC Milan a month ago through my partner, but nothing concrete,” he said.
“In January it is much more probable the English track will be followed, also because there aren’t problems about extra EU players.
“If Krasic won’t leave in January, in the summer Italy could return as a possibility. And if Milan were to come forward, it would be an excellent solution for Milos, no doubt about it.”
The CSKA president Yevgeny Giner also admitted that he would be happy for Krasic, or the rumoured Man Utd target Akinfeev, to leave, after the club finished a disappointing fifth in the Russian League.
“Nobody at CSKA is happy with our position in the league,” said Giner. “We set ourselves only one task: to be champions.
“As for the rumours about our leading players, such as Akinfeev or Krasic – if we receive an offer from a top club we will discuss it. But from an average club, it will not be considered.”
