He does not think of signing for any club
The Swede continues to be associated with many European clubs for the future. The last has been Roma, but before also Barcelona and Manchester City. From this summer, in addition, Borussia Dortmund will be able to take it for 30 million euros, with the mandatory green light of the ram and for solely sporting reasons, never economic ones.
Playing the Premier is one of the future aspirations of Isak. He doesn’t hide it: “I can definitely imagine myself playing in England. It is perhaps the best league in the world and it is clear that you always want to stick to first-rate football, “he told the Swedish newspaper ‘Aftonbladet’, to questions from his readers.
To the peace of mind of the fans, the Swede maintains, however, that “I am not thinking much about a move at the moment.” He adds something that he had already said on occasion: “I just want to continue playing here and finish the season as well as possible. I’m definitely not thinking of any transfers at the moment, ”he says.
