Simon Kjaer has been linked with several big clubs since signing a 5-year-deal with Palermo, with Real Madrid just missing out on his signature.

Last month, reports suggested that Chelsea and Liverpool were interested in signing him, although the player has today insisted his desired move is to United.

“Man United have won the Champions League twice and need a third and Liverpool have Agger, Skrtel and Carragher,” he said. “I would without hesitation choose Man Utd, but it does not help to choose with the heart in such a situation, I am a professional.”

Since joining the Italian club, this centre-half has scored 3 goals in 22 matches and has received his first call up to the Danish national football team, after previously representing his country in the U-21s.
