The Red Devils are looking to find a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Jonathan David has admitted his interest in joining a new club amid reports linking him with a move to Manchester United.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s possible departure will most likely force the Red Devils to look for a new striker next summer. 

Widespread reports in English media claim Erik ten Hag has already come up with a short-list to replace CR7. Moussa Dembele and Patrick Schick are on Man Utd’s radar.

But the club reportedly prefers David, who has shown incredible form at Lille in recent seasons.

The Canada international has scored nine goals in his 12 appearances for the Ligue 1 giants this season. Having attracted interest from a host of elite sides, David says he feels ready to take the next step in his career.

 “I was always watching European football on TV. So, for me, that was always the goal. For me it was, I only wanted to go to Europe,” David told Sky Sports News.

“The next step is always growing, having more ambition, a bigger club.

“Every player wants to play for a massive club in their life. I think if I had the chance to do it, I’ll go for it for sure.”

 He added: “They are two different leagues [Premier League and La Liga]. But I think I can adapt to both for sure.

“I think with the experience that I’ve had here in France, it will help me a lot if I need to adapt to some place else a lot faster. I think both leagues suit me.”
