Montpellier Captain Interested in Manchester United Transfer

Montpellier captain Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has revealed that he would love to play for Manchester United after admitting that he is yet to make a decision on hi long-term future. 


The 22-year-old has been vital in helping in Montpellier push for the league title as they attempt to hold off the challenge of big spenders Paris Saint-Germain. 


Montpellier are currently top of Ligue 1 and are looking certain to qualify for the Champions League, a competition the young defender has never played in. 


The superb form of the French club has led to a number of European sides looking at their players and Yanga-Mbiwa has hinted that he would be happy to move to the Premier League. 


"To play for Manchester United would be a great satisfaction and a dream which could become reality," he told Canal+, as reported on 


"Arsenal, also, is a big team. Marseille, also, despite of their difficulties, remains very attracting. I would never have thought that Marseille would follow me."


The defender has a contract which expires in the summer of 2013 and there is the worry that he could decide not to renew his contract and leave on a free when his deal runs out. 


Arsenal have previously looked to France to sign the best young talent having brought the likes of Bacary Sagna, Emmanuel Petit  and Nicolas Anelka to the club.
