The 21-year-old has previously expressed a proclivity to joining United, but reports coming from Italy today suggest that they are behind the likes of Chelsea, West Ham, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Monaco, who are all keen on landing his signature.

Juventus chiefs have been checking out German international Rudiger while Monaco failed with a £12m bid for his services during the summer transfer window.

But Rudiger has handed United a boost by claiming that a switch to Old Trafford is his dream.

“Of course I am aware of the interest from Manchester United,” he said.

“They are definitely one of the top clubs in Europe and they are in a league I have been dreaming of. The Premier League is very physical, intense, breathtaking and with a lot of goals.

“My focus, though, remains on playing for Stuttgart. For now, I just have to try and progress as a player.”
