Ross Barkley comments on future amid Manchester United links

Ross Barkley insists he would love to keep playing in the Premier League amid Manchester United links and Luton Town relegation fears.

Ross Barkley has been one of this season’s success stories in the Premier League. Having struggled for relevance for many years since moving to Stamford Bridge, the Former Chelsea flop has been a revelation for Luton Town, who took the gamble on him in the summer.

With five goals and six assists in all competitions for Luton Town this season, he has been one of the standout stars for the Hatters. Should he continue to perform well for Rob Edwards’ side, he might well prove to be the catalyst in helping the club survive the ordeal of relegation.

There’s no clarity over his contract at Kenilworth Road, as rumours suggest he only signed a one-year deal. There might be some clauses should Luton survive this season and remain in the top flight, but Barkley feels he has to keep playing in the Premier League and continue to flourish in his career, as his comments appeared on the Express.

Barkley said, “I want to play in the Premier League. I want to play in Europe again, but I’m not focused on that now. I want to help the club stay in the league. I love the club. It’s helped me so much, and I owe them a lot.”

“So I’m focused on that and thinking about nothing other than helping them do that. I feel like for the next three years maybe I’ll still be in my prime years.”

“I’m enjoying all the moments because I know over the last few years there’s been ups and downs, frustrations and great moments. And now I feel ready to be at my best, consistent, in a great place in my head as well.”

“I haven’t had a lot of mileage over the last few years in my legs, so I feel fresh. I know it’s the last games of the season coming up – but I feel like it’s the start of the season.”

The Former Chelsea flop has the interest of Manchester United of late, and it would not be a move that surprises many as the Red Devils are looking for an experienced player of his ilk. he might well be the replacement for Christian Eriksen, who seems poised to leave Old Trafford in the summer.

In any case, several clubs will keep close tabs on Barkley’s performances as the Former Chelsea flop could get a move to become a regular elsewhere. At Manchester United, he may not be a bona fide starter, although he could still prove himself to be a valuable asset to the club.

While he reiterated his love for Luton Town, he might not want to experience the Championship with them should they suffer relegation. Hence, he may continue with the Hatters should they stay safe, or he will evaluate his options for a new move in the summer and look to remain on the top flight.
