Jelavic couldn't reject United

BY foxsports • May 31, 2011

Jelavic enjoyed an impressive debut season in the SPL having scored 16 league goals from 23 appearances. The Croatia international is aware of speculation linking him with a move to the Champions League runners-up, although he insists he is happy in Scotland. However, should an offer from Old Trafford be forthcoming then he would have to give the move serious consideration - stating the English giants are a hard club to reject. "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 a 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."
