Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir says he “dreams” of making the move to the Premier League to play for Manchester United.
Fekir was linked with a move to Liverpool during the summer, however, the French international has revealed he is far more keen on joining the Reds’ fiercest rivals.
“Why can’t I one day play for Manchester [United]? This is the club of my dreams,” he told Europe 1, as reported by Daily Star.
“I am not there yet. I must have a good season with Lyon and then we’ll see.”

The 22-year-old is understood to have caught the eye of Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers after a series of eye-catching performances in Ligue 1 last season, and the Merseyside club are reported to be keen to bring him to Anfield in the future.
Arsenal have also been linked with Fekir, but his latest comments suggest he is hell-bent on a move to Old Trafford.
