Bournemouth striker Josh King wants to return to Manchester United this summer according to The Athletic after suffering relegation with the Cherries at the end of last season.

Josh King and Bournemouth suffered relegation from the Premier League alongside Watford and Norwich City.

The 28-year-old striker started his career in English football as a youngster at Manchester United having moved to the club from his native Norway.

Josh King spent five years at Manchester United before he signed for English Championship side Blackburn Rovers in 2013. He spent two years at Ewood Park before signing for his current team.

He has been a key player for the Cherries for the better part of the last five years but the Norwegian international was unable to prevent Bournemouth from suffering relegation at the end of the last Premier League campaign.

Manchester United tried to re-sign him during the January transfer window earlier this year only for the move to collapse at the last minute. The club went on to sign retired Nigerian international Odion Ighalo on loan.

Bournemouth have already lost the services of Josh King’s strike partner, Callum Wilson, to Premier League side Newcastle United in a £20m deal and Josh King could follow suit.
