United move my dream, says Dortmund defender

It is a dream to play for Manchester United one day, reveals Borussia Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji.  

Akanji moved to Borussia Dortmund from Basel during the January transfer window and has already established himself as a key player in their back four. When club captain Marco Reus was substituted against Nurnberg, Akanji took over the armband, but he already has much bigger targets in his sights.

Speaking to NZZ, Akanji said, "I have a big dream. To get as far as possible in football. Since my childhood days, Manchester United have been my favorite club. I'd like to play there one day."

"But right now, that's not an issue. I am happy at Dortmund and try to be the best possible person off the pitch," he added. 

Having played every minute of all of Dortmund's competitive games this term, Akanji has averaged around 72 passes per Bundesliga match, with 94.5 percent completed.
