Dortmund defender: ‘It would be nice to play’ for Man Utd

Date published: Friday 12th October 2018 8:52

Borussia Dortmund centre-half Manuel Akanji has opened the door to a potential future move to Manchester United.

Man Utd are eager to add defensive reinforcements as early as this winter, with Jose Mourinho targeting a young centre-half.

Milan Skriniar and Alessio Romagnoli are top of the Portuguese’s wishlist, but both would cost around £40m each.

Mourinho could potentially consider a move for Akanji instead – although he cost Dortmund around £16m when he joined from Basel last January.

“Many know that Manchester United has been my favourite club since childhood,” the 23-year-old said at a press conference on Thursday.

“It would be nice to play there, but that’s not an issue right now.

“I am very satisfied in Dortmund, I want to win titles with BVB and compete in many more big tournaments with the Swiss national teams.”
