Rapid European No.19 Confirms: “Manchester United is my dream”
PSV EINDHOVEN striker Jurgen Locadia has revealed his dream of one day playing for Manchester United.
Locadia missed most of last season through injury but did manage to bag three goals and provide three assists in 14 appearances for PSV.
And the 23-year-old hopes to follow in the footsteps of Dutch compatriot Georginio Wijnaldum to the Premier League.
Wijnaldum left PSV for Newcastle in the summer of 2015 and earned a move to Liverpool after a season at St James’ Park.
Manchester United is the club Locadia dreams of playing for, but the striker admits he may need to find a smaller club in England before ending up at the Theatre of Dreams.
Locadia told Dutch public broadcaster NOS: “Manchester United is my dream, but via an intermediate step.
“I like the path Georginio Wijnaldum has walked, from Newcastle United to Liverpool.”
Memphis Depay was United’s last signing from PSV, and the 23-year-old failed to live up to his £25m price tag.
The Holland international lasted just one-an-a-half years at Old Trafford before being offloaded to Lyon in January.
Locadia also has another dream – to DJ in front of 30,000 people.
He added: “If it is well received, I do want to continue it. Deep in my heart I dream to run a festival with 30,000 people.”
“PSV have asked me to create a special club song, but I have not had time yet.”
