Dutch wonderkid Anthony Musaba names Man Utd transfer as "ultimate dream"

Monaco youngster Anthony Musaba has revealed that the idea of playing for Manchester United in the Premier League is his “ultimate dream”.

The 19-year-old, left the Netherlands in the summer, joining the Ligue 1 side from NEC Nijmegen.

Musaba earned his move after a hugely impressive final season in Dutch football, netting seven goals and registering five assists in the second tier.

After signing for the principality club, he was loaned to Cercle Brugge, where he is looking to continue his development in the Belgian top-flight.

And so far, he’s got off to an ideal start, with three goal involvements in just eight games.

Musaba, who can play either right or left-wing, already has his eyes on making an impact at his parent club, but has even loftier ambitions.

“AS Monaco has experience in training and bringing young players", he told Voetbal Primeur.

"A lot of young people break through at Monaco and then have a great career. That is of course my dream to break through and to be able to and continue to play at a high level.

"The first goal after this season is to return to Monaco and break through there.

"My ultimate dream is to be able to play at Wembley one day. The English league is my favorite competition. Manchester United and Real Madrid are my favorite teams.

Pellistri is currently with the development squads at Carrington, while Diallo will join his new teammates in January, once a work permit is secured.
