Marseille defensive midfielder Stephane Mbia has claimed he is dreaming of one day becoming a Manchester United player.

“I do not look at Manchester United in the same way as other teams,” he said. “They are a dream. A dream that has become feasible. More than ever, thanks to my performance and that of my team. I want to go as high as possible. Real Madrid is a very good team too. But the club of my heart, my dreams, is Manchester. I feel good in Marseille but we must be ambitious.”
