Benni fancies United move

03 April 2007 03:23
Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy has admitted that he would love to play for Manchester United. The South Africa international has enjoyed a successful first season in England, following last summer's transfer to Ewood Park from FC Porto, and has already grabbed 18 goals this season. "[Manchester United] are the most popular team in my country. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Milan are nothing in comparison," said McCarthy. "At the moment my ambition is to make Blackburn a big force in the Premiership and in the FA Cup - but I am a dreamer. "With the attackers that United have, I do not think I have much chance of moving to Old Trafford. "But I want to see myself playing for the best and you must have ambition because, without it, players are nothing. "That's not being disrespectful to Blackburn because it is a very good club and the management, players and fans have all made me feel very welcome."
