Lyon star Nabil Fekir admits to 'dream' of playing for Manchester United

Manchester United 3

The summer transfer window may have only just closed but that has not stopped Lyon’s Nabil Fekir from discussing a move away – one day.

Nabil Fekir may have been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool over the busy summer months - by the Express, among others - but it would appear that the 22-year-old only has eyes for one specific Premier League club, judging by comments made to Europe 1.

Among the star attractions in a youthful Lyon side that has been tipped to challenge Paris Saint-Germain for top honours in France this season, Fekir looks destined for big things in European football.

Whether that includes a move across the Channel in the summer of 2016 remains to be seen but, if the attacking midfielder does opt to depart Les Gones, it could be for Manchester United.

Speaking in an interview with Europe 1, the Lyon star professed his admiration for the club.

"Why not play at Manchester United one day? This is a club of dreams," he said.

"I want to have a good season at Lyon, then we'll see."

Fekir enjoyed a memorable 2014-15 campaign in France, scoring 15 goals in 40 games for the Stade Gerland side.

That form earned the attacker a call up to the France national team, with the 22-year-old already off the mark for Les Bleus with one goal from four appearances to date.

Impress this term and Fekir will not only earn a place in the France squad for Euro 2016, but possibly even a move to the Premier League.
