Kameni 'dreams' of Man Utd
It is a dream, but at the moment I do not think that it is right to force things. I have to take what happens slowly

Cameroon goalkeeper Carlos Idriss Kameni has said it would be 'a dream' to play for Manchester United, after being linked with a possible transfer to the English club.

Kameni, who has been in outstanding form for Spanish Primera Liga side Espanyol, said he is flattered by the interest he has attracted from some of Europe's leading clubs.

Tony Coton, Manchester United's goalkeeping coach, has reportedly watched him several times this year.

"Manchester [United] is a great club. You always talk about them as you do about [AC] Milan and Juventus," Kameni explained.

"It is a dream, but at the moment I do not think that it is right to force things. I have to take what happens slowly.

"There are lots of good sides and I could not say which one I would like to play for or which league, although it is possible I would go to England.

"I have a lot of friends there like Geremi and [Eric] Djemba-Djemba and I have talked to them a lot about life in England."

Kameni was little known when he arrived at Espanyol from French side Le Havre last summer, where he had been struggling to establish his career.

The Cameroonian snatched a first-team place at Espanyol after Belgium-born Erwin Lemmens sustained an injury.

Kameni's form has been key to the club's impressive performance in this season's Spanish championship, with Espanyol lying fourth in the 20-team league.
