Schalke striker Ahmed Kutucu has admitted it would be a dream to play for Manchester United one day.

The 19-year-old frontman broke into the team at Schalke last season and has scored four goals in his four starts for the Bundesliga club.

He's highly rated by his boss, former Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner, and has recently been picked for his country Turkey in Euro 2020 qualifying.

And speaking to German news outlet Fanatik he outlined his desire to move to the Premier League, to United, while also name-checking La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, as well as Juventus.

 

"The Premier League is a beautiful and special league and one day I want to play there," said Kutucu.

"The fans are involved and close to the gameplay, and I feel the atmosphere there is very impressive. In those stages, you want to fight to the end, even with total exhaustion.

"Of course, clubs with history like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus or Manchester United are every footballer's dream.

"I'm 19 years old, it's impossible to look this far into the future, my clear priority is to break through here.

"I want to be constantly in action in the Bundesliga and make my family and loved ones proud."

 

United are currently in the market for a striker and have been linked with RB Salzburg forward Erling Braut Haaland, among other players.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that he could make two additions in the upcoming January window, though Kutucu's name has not been mentioned in relation to an Old Trafford move.
