“There is interest from Manchester United and a top Italian club,” he told the Austria Press Agency.
“It is a big honour, I would not have expected something like this so fast.
“Originally it was always my goal to stay in the Red Bull [Salzburg] family forever and one day play for Leipzig. But if a [club the] calibre like this is interested, that makes you think.
“In two or three days there will be a meeting with my manager Frank Schreier. We have to evaluate whether a move makes sense and whether I would have the perspective to play regularly.
“I am not a dreamer and I know that these clubs have many interesting players who have no space to play.”
