Levante striker Emmanuel Boateng has admitted he wants a move to Manchester United in the future. The 22-year-old joined the Liga side from Portuguese outfit Moreirense last summer and has gone on to make 29 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals.
Levante side finished 15th in La Liga with 46 points from 38 games last season. They started the campaign very slowly, before turning things around in 2018 with eight wins and two draws from their last 12 games. Boateng found his best form this year too, scoring a hat-trick in the final outing of the season to end Barcelona’s unbeaten run.
He’s not resting on his laurels either, saying he’s dreaming big and hoping to play for a European giant in the future. Boateng said, in quotes reported by the Mirror: “I always dream big, I see myself playing in one of the great clubs of the world in the next five years. Big clubs like Manchester United and Barcelona excite me”.
The 22-year-old made only 10 league starts in 2017/18, so he may need to become one of the first names on the Levante teamsheet and be scoring more consistently before the likes of Barca and United take notice. Jose Mourinho does have a strong attack already, with Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial for options.
