Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal has urged Liverpool and Manchester United to resurrect their interest in him after almost completing a move three years back.
The Premier League giants have since taken a step back in their pursuit of Kayal, with the player's career cut back with a series of injuries. The 25-year-old is now back to full fitness and is hoping to replicate the same form he showed with Celtic before his injury setbacks.
The Israeli claims that the stalwarts of English football ended their interest in him owing to Celtic's asking price which hovered around the £7m mark.
"In my first season at Celtic a lot of teams came to watch me. Kenny Dalglish, who was manager of Livepool, and Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United had communications with me," Kayal said.
"With a lot of teams interested, Celtic wanted too much money. Now, because of my injuries, the price is much lower but my dream is still alive and well," he added.
The midfielder revealed that he had fallen out of love with Scottish football and was waiting for an opportunity to leave the club.
"There is a lack of technique, the football is played at a breakneck speed with power and intensity, and it doesn't stop for a minute. I'm not in love with this league. If someone comes up with an attractive proposition to Celtic and me, then I'll go," he explained.
Much has changed in English football over the past three years, with the Red Devils winning their 20th league title in Sir Alex Ferguson's last season at the club. The following year has seen Brendan Rodgers rallying his team to the pinnacle of the Premier League and the Red Devils falling into obscurity under David Moyes.
However, with six games to go until the end of the season and United still alive in the Champions League, both these teams will have the chance to make their season an overwhelming success.
