FC Midtjylland star Mikkel Duelund hopes to use Man United tie as audition for Old Trafford move

FC Midtjylland midfielder Mikkel Duelund has admitted that he is dreaming of a move to Manchester United just 24 hours before the two sides meet in the Europa League this week, according to the Daily Express.

The 18-year-old is set to line up for the Danish side on Thursday night, and though he has insisted that he is focussed on knocking the Red Devils out of the competition, he also confirmed that he is a big fan of the club.

Duelund reportedly has one of Wayne Rooney’s shirts framed on his wall and has confirmed that he would one day love to play for the club.

“I have been a United supporter since I was a little boy, you know with posters and scarves on the wall in my room,” he said.

“My cousin played with the Denmark youth national team against Wayne Rooney and got his shirt for me after the game. So I’ve had Rooney’s shirt on my wall for many years – and now I will face him in an important game.

“My ultimate dream in football would be to play for Manchester United but here and now my biggest ambition is to knock out the team I love.”
