Southampton Resigned To Losing Man Utd Target Nathaniel Clyne

Nathaniel Clyne

Reports are out claiming that Southampton manager Ronald Koeman expects Nathaniel Clyne to depart the club this summer.

The 24-year old right-back has recently been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United with Champions League football high on his agenda and Koeman feels that talent may be on his way out at St Mary’s at the end of the campaign.

“It’s up to the press how they take those kind of comments,” said the Dutchman.

“I like to play Champions League as well but that’s the aspiration for every football player and it’s a normal aspiration. If you don’t mention that, there’s something wrong.

“We are still in talks with the agent of Clyney, but it’s difficult. I read in the press there’s some interest.

“Nobody knocked on the door with an offer for Clyne, but we know he has one season on his contract and we want Clyne to stay at the club. We need understanding for that but nothing else.

“We hope one day we will compare to the big ones, but that’s difficult. We know our level, we know our possibilities.

“The club can’t fight against big teams in the Premier League because the money and the possibilities of them are still much higher than we have.”
