A-League side Western Melbourne are set to step up their efforts to sign Celtic midfielder Scott Brown this week, according to The Scottish Sun.
The paper reckon talks are set to take place between club officials and the player over the next few days, with the Australian side ready to offer him a three-year deal to lure him away from Celtic Park.
The new Australian season, with Melbourne making their debut in the A-League, isn’t due to start until much later in the year, but The Sun believe that they’ll want an answer from Brown on his future this month.
The veteran midfielder also has the option of staying on at Celtic, with manager Brendan Rodgers going on the record to share his admiration for his invincible captain.
However, The Sun also report that MLS sides Minnesota United and Sporting Kansas City are also interested in his services, giving the player a range of potential life-changing options to consider over the coming weeks.
The captain was roundly criticised for his performance against Rangers at the weekend, with some fans believing we are currently seeing the inevitable decline of the 33-year-old.
The emergence of Callum McGregor and Ryan Christie is exciting fans, so would the best thing for Celtic be saying goodbye to Brown at the end of this season?
