Aly Cissokho has said through his agent that he would prefer a move to Manchester United over any other club, with the 24 year old planning his future beyond the end of the season already.

Cissokho has starred at left-back for Lyon since making the move to the club from Porto in 2009. As a result, he's drawn attention from a host of Premier League clubs, including Newcastle and Liverpool.

And while the 24 year old considers where his next move might be in the summer, Manchester United have also been brought up as a possible destination for Cissokho, and his agent believes that if United came calling, he would be unable to turn down an offer to play for one of England's biggest clubs.

"Aly wants to play in the Premier League because he feels it suits his game," Ali Barat told talkSPORT.

"He has already turned down interest from AC Milan and Juventus because he wants to move to the Premier League and his preferred destination would be Manchester United."

United could be in the market for a left-back this summer, with Patrice Evra currently the only player standing tall in the position.

Any deals for Cissokho will likely go through early in the transfer window, with Sir Alex Ferguson often avoiding taking part in last minute deals which increase the price of a player.

Last summer the club were widely connected to a deal for Wesley Sneijder, and even in the dying hours of the transfer window reports were still circulating that the playmaker might move to Old Trafford. But Ferguson insisted that all his dealings were done, and deadline day passed without any word from the club.

With that in mind, it would appear that Cissokho will know by the end of June whether his fate is in fact to be at Old Trafford.
