Montpellier star Remy Cabella has revealed that he would love to play for Manchester United although he refused to admit that the Premier League giants made him an offer during the last transfer window.

The French starlet was heavily linked with a January move to both Manchester United and Newcastle, with some reports claiming that he has an agreement to move to St James Park at the end of the season - with the Magpies willing to pay £15m to secure his services.

However, the 23-year-old attacking midfielder suggests that he is yet to decide his future and asked in an interview with French TV BeIN Sport about a potential move to Old Trafford, Cabella said: "Manchester United is always a dream for any player."

"But you must ask my father who looks after 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]."

Cabella refused to leave Montpellier in mid-season as he wanted to help the Ligue 1 side to avoid relegation. Nevertheless, with the French side having won four of their last eight games, they are now 10 points clear of the relegation zone and the midfielder is set to move away in the summer.

"We'll see in May when it will be discussed. For now I am with Montpellier. It is a trust agreement. The price? It is the president who decides."

Cabella has garnered a reputation as one of the most talented players in Ligue 1. He has scored 10 goals and grabbed 7 assists in 25 domestic league appearances, catching the eyes of a number of big European clubs, includying United, Newcastle and Arsenal.

The Magpies have earmarked him as Yohan Cabaye's replacement, after the French midfielder moved to Paris Saint Germain last January, but Cabella's latest quotes suggest that he may be tempted to snub them and moved instead to Old Trafford.
