Saint Etienne attacker Neal Maupay has revealed Manchester United are the club of his dreams.
When being interviewed for ButFootballClub.fr, Maupay admitted Old Trafford was his favourite stadium as well. He’s obviously got a soft spot for Man United.
Maupay is a 19-year-old French attacker who has only recently joined Saint Etienne but he made a match winning contribution to the French side’s 1-0 win over Lorient back in August when he came off the bench after an hour and grabbed an assist.
We’ve said it on numerous occasions but a player genuinely wanting to play for United makes such a big difference to their mentality (cough, Angel di Maria…), so Maupay ticks the box in that regard.
United’s scouts are clearly active in France at the moment if the Anthony Martial deal is anything to go by, so it will be interesting if anything develops around Maupay in the future.
Imagine another French 19-year-old moving to United so soon after Martial joined from AS Monaco? We’d be turning into Arsenal. That being said, if Maupay could be anywhere near as good as Martial he’s welcome to come any time.
