Myanmar won the bronze-medal at the 2019 SEA Games in Philippines last month and a couple of their key players are right now reportedly targeted by clubs from Malaysia and Thailand.
It is being reported that Myanmar U-22 star forward Aung Kaung Mann has received offers from both Malaysia Super League and Thai League 1 clubs and is currently contemplating which club to join.
Kuang Mann, 21 years of age, scored five goals for the Asian Lions in the 30th Southeast Asian Games including in the semifinal defeat against Indonesia and the bronze medal match against Cambodia that Myanmar won via penalty shootouts.

“I have offers from Thailand and Malaysia, but I have not made a final decision. However, I have declined the Malaysian club due to their playing style, which does not appear to fit my playing style,” Kaung Mann was quoted as saying by Myanmar Times.
The forward is currently contracted to Myanmar National League runners-up Ayeyawady United.
Meanwhile, Yadanarbon FC midfielder Myat Kaung Khant, who was another standout star of SEA Games 2019, also reportedly has an offer from an unnamed Thai League 1 club.
