German international Ron-Robert Zieler has revealed that he could return to the Premier League in the future, reports Goal.com.
The Hannover 96 'keeper - who was previously at Manchester United as a youngster - has insisted that he was 'very lucky' to have played for the club, despite having never made a first-team appearance for the Old Trafford outfit.
Since leaving the Theatre of Dreams for the Bundesliga in 2010, the youngster has gone from strength-to-strength, quickly becoming the club's No.1 shot-stopper. He also went to the World Cup with eventual winners Germany, but failed to replace Manuel Neuer in the side's starting XI.
However, it appears that a return to England could be on the cards for the former Manchester United youth ace.
Speaking to Goal, he said: "I really enjoyed a really great training in England, but never played for the first team [for Manchester United] in the Premier League.
- Man United star forced to explain himself
- Man United striker injured; could miss City clash
- Man Utd happy with Chelsea draw - is that right?
"But I don't know what will happen, it's hard to predict. I hope to have at least another 10 years [left in my career]. I hope I will stay healthy and can still play for a long time.
"It's a fact I extended my contract with Hannover for another three years. For sure England is one of the countries that would be appealing - but it could also be that I will play for another 10 years in Germany. Football business is so fast moving, you should never look ahead for too long."
However, the German ace has insisted that he doesn't have his sights set on one specific dream move, but admitted that he enjoyed playing for Manchester United, who he deems as one of the best clubs in world football.
He continued by saying: "There is no [dream] club like that. There are a lot of great clubs.
"I was very lucky that I already was allowed to play for one of the best clubs in the world, namely Manchester United.
"There are a lot of clubs that are appealing, but there is not the one club of whom I say: 'I want to play there one day."
Manchester United may well regret allowing Zieler leave the club at such an early stage, but Louis van Gaal will be quite content with his goalkeepers currently at the Theatre of Dreams.
Spanish ace David de Gea is recognised as one of the best young 'keepers in world football, whilst the club also have Danish ace Anders Lindegaard at their disposal. In fact, former Barcelona 'keeper Victor Valdes is training with the Red Devils, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will be offered a contract with the club.
