Galatasaray goalkeeper and Manchester United target Fernando Muslera says it is his dream to play in the English Premier League.
The 26-year old impressed during his team’s 1-0 defeat to United in the Champions League earlier this season, making several vital saves including a penalty stop from Nani.
With Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly interested in the Uruguay international as doubts remain over both David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard, Muslera said he was looking for a move.
“The Premier League is my childhood dream,” he told Haberturk.
“I always want to move forward in football. I started off with Wanderers, then Nacional, then Lazio and then, a step forward, Galatasaray.
“(It’s) because I’ve always wanted to play for a club that participates in the Champions League.”
Galatasaray sit top of the Turkish Super Lig by three points, but Muslera believes a transfer to a top English club is what the majority of players around the globe aim for.
“It’s probably any footballer’s dream to play in England, not just mine. I have a contract with Galatasaray but if an offer comes through and it benefits the club, then why not?” he said.
Galatasaray vice-president Ali Durust said after the defeat to United that the club ‘never want to sell’ Muslera.
De Gea is Ferguson’s first-choice goalkeeper, but the number one jersey has been traded numerous times this season.
