Sevilla show Park interest

Manchester United midfielder Ji-Sung Park has emerged as a transfer target for Sevilla.

Park, who has two-and-a-half years left on his United contract, is wanted by the Spanish club who are making a concerted effort to land the South Korea star.

Sevilla technical director Victor Orta was in England last week to meet with Parkís representatives, with a view to signing the 29-year-old in January, who joined United for £4million from PSV Eindhoven in 2005.

Whilst it is true that not many footballers would want to leave a club that many believe is the biggest in the world it could be that the time is right for South Korean Ji-Sung Park to look for pastures new. Whilst the 29 year old has never been a regular first team starter at 29 years of age the former PSV man may feel that now is the time to push on and move to a club who can offer him a guaranteed first team spot.

Park has started just seven out of fifteen Premier League matches this season and the £9m rated midfielder has been in top form when called upon but seems no nearer to becoming one of the first names on Sir Alex Fergusonís team sheet.

Sevilla are struggling to maintain their recent positioning behind the big two in La Liga and are clearly interested in the tireless Man United man.
