Joshua King switches back to former agent as Manchester United speculations gathers pace

AFC Bournemouth striker Joshua King has gone back to his former agent as speculations about his future gather pace.

King is believed to be on the radar of Manchester United and a series of English Premier League clubs and going back to Football agent Jim Solbakken who is said to have a close relationship with United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has just fueled more rumours.

Solbakken welcomed Joshua King back as a client in an Instagram post on Sunday night with King having been represented by Chris Welbeck, the big brother of Watford striker Danny Welbeck.

King almost joined United in the January window but a deal fell through in the last minutes with the English giants going for Nigerian Odion Ighalo; the player believed to be attracting offers from other Premier League clubs too according to Sky Sports

The move is said to have left King frustrated as he had hoped to rejoin United; a club he represented during his youthful days.

The 28-year-old has been one of the most consistent players in the Bournemouth squad but a chance to feature for one of the biggest clubs in England might be too good to turn down.

King who has one year left on his Bournemouth contract has scored 48 times for the club since moving five years ago after his contract ran out at Blackburn Rovers.

He has 46 international caps for Norway and has scored 17 goals for his national team.
