Borussia Dortmund central defender Manuel Akanji has admitted that he would be interested in playing for Manchester United one day.
The 23-year-old, as cited by football website Calciomercato.com, has been discussing what the future may hold for him as he continues to progress under the tutelage of Lucien Favre at die Borussen.
Manuel has established himself as an essential player for the Bundesliga giants, amassing seven league matches. He has also started both of Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League group stage fixtures this campaign.
The Switzerland international is apparently enjoying his time in Germany but was quick to highlight one of his biggest ambitions as Akanji looked ahead to the future.
Manuel revealed that one day, he would be interested in playing for Premier League giants Manchester United, before insisting that a transfer away from Borussia Dortmund is not currently on his mind.
“I am ambitious, I want to get as far as possible. One day I would like to wear the Manchester United shirt, but I do not think about it now.”
The Red Devils were keen to land a central defender in the summer transfer market and could be alerted by the recent comments from Borussia Dortmund star Akanji.
