Marseille midfielder Stephane Mbia has admitted he wants to join Manchester United in the future.
The 24-year-old, constantly linked with a move to England, has recently penned a contract extension with the French club, keeping him at the club until 2014.
But the Cameroonian is aiming to use the Ligue 1 side as a stepping-stone to eventually join one of Europe’s elite.
"I want to go as high as possible," he told L'Equipe.
"First I want to do well at Marseille, so my performances will one day send me to a club like Manchester United.
"Real Madrid are also an attractive side, but the club of my dreams is Manchester United.
"I feel fine at Marseille for now, but you have to have ambition."
Mbia is set to line up against United for Marseille in two weeks time in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
