Milos Krasic's agent says the highly rated Serbian star would be "stupid" to reject the chance of a move to the Premier League.

Krasic, who currently plys his trade with CSKA Moscow, has been named in Serbia's World Cup squad alongside defender Nemanja Vidic, who also moved to Russia to boost his experience before making the switch to England.

Krasic is likely to be on the move from Russia soon though, with many top clubs circling the £15 million-rated winger. The 25-year-old's preferred destination is thought to be Bayern Munich, alongside close friend Ivica Olic.

As the Russian domestic season runs throughout the summer, Krasic will have to take time out from his domestic duties to appear in the World Cup. But he wants his future clarified before he heads to South Africa.

"It is possible CSKA will want to wait until after because his price might rise but Milos would prefer everything to be done before the World Cup,'' his agent Joksimovic said.

"Bayern would be his first choice because his best friend is there, but the German league is also the weakest of the countries who could realistically afford him.

"I must stress, Manchester United have not been in touch, but the attraction is there because of Vidic, and in Milos' opinion the Premier League remains the best in the world. He would certainly be happy to test himself there. Let's be honest, you would be stupid to say no.''
