Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella may just have rekindled rumours concerning a potential future switch to Manchester United, with the player having admitted that the club is 'always a dream for any player'.
Indeed, he was then heavily linked with a move to Premier League rivals Newcastle in January - with some even suggesting that a switch had been provisionally agreed for the end of the current campaign.
Cabella - who has scored 10 goals and laid on five assists in 25 Ligue 1 appearances this season and has been rated at around £15 million - has been notably coy on his future in a recent interview, but was clear in his praise for Manchester United.
"We'll see in May when it will be discussed," he said on his future in an interview with beIN Sports that was quoted by talkSPORT.
"For now I am with Montpellier. It is a trust agreement. The price? It is the president who decides.
"Manchester United? You must ask my father who cares for me. Until there is something serious, I will say nothing. It is also a matter of respect for my club and Mr. Nicollin [Montpellier president].
"But Manchester United is always a dream for any player," he added.
Although Newcastle seemed likely to be Cabella's next destination, Manchester United could certainly use a player of his ability to add some badly-needed quality to David Moyes' squad at Old Trafford.
Last night's 2-0 defeat to Olympiacos in the first-leg of their Champions League last 16 tie marked a new low in what has been a massively disappointing season for Manchester United under Moyes and he will surely need to heavily invest to radically transform the makeup of his team this summer if he is to be successful with the club moving forward.
