Celtic full back Emilio Izaguirre is a shock target for Man Utd. According to reports, Sir Alex Ferguson has arranged a meeting with Celtic management to discuss a possible move for the Honduras international.

Izaguirre was outstanding for Celtic in his debut season, and speaking of a potential move to United the player said: "Regarding possibilities, I prefer to stay silent as I did when Celtic signed me. This is a job of my agent. I have to confirm it's 100percent true that Manchester United were following me and were interested in me.

"It was Alex Ferguson directly who made contact with the Celtic directors. I am aware also that Manchester United and Celtic agreed for a meeting in July. We have to see what happens if I stay or I go.

"If I have the chance I welcome the move with open arms. If that is the case I will thank God and I will take my opportunity."
