Montpellier star welcomes Manchester United link

Montpellier defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa admits he is flattered by reports linking him with a number of high-profile sides.

The France Under-21 international is already playing his fifth season as a first team regular at Stade de la Mosson and it appears that he will be looking for a new challenge in the summer.

The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the best centre-backs in French Ligue 1 and he has seen his name linked with a host of big European clubs.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are being mentioned as potential destinations and the player is not prepared to rule out any options.

“To play for Manchester United would be a great satisfaction and a dream which could become reality,” Montpellier captain told Canal +.

“Arsenal, also, is a big team. Marseille, also, despite of their difficulties, remains very attracting. I would never have thought that Marseille would follow me.”

The highly rated defender is enjoying a brilliant season with Montpellier, with Rene Girard’s side currently sitting five points clear of their rivals at the Ligue 1 summit.

Yanga-Mbiwa has been one of the most consistent performers in the side this term, having featured in 30 Ligue 1 games.
