Nedved targets United switch
Pavel Nedved
Nedved is aware of United's interest
Lazio midfielder Pavel Nedved has expressed his desire to join Manchester United.

Nedved has one year left on his contract with his Italian club but is apparently high on United boss Sir Alex Ferguson's list of targets.

"I'd love to join Manchester United," the Czech international told The Sunday Mirror.

"After five or six years in Italy, it's time for me to go - and I want that opportunity before it's too late."

There has been talk, talk and more talk, but so far nothing has happened
  Pavel Nedved

He continued: "I want the chance to fulfil my dreams of playing in the Champions League final and I want to do that with a team that is capable of getting there - for me that team is United.

"I only have one ambition left in my football career and that is to join Manchester United."

Nedved's hopes could be hit by Ferguson's announcement that he will be leaving and severing links with United at the end of next season.

Nedved added: "Of course I have known about their interest for some time.

"There has been talk, talk and more talk, but so far nothing has happened except Lazio making it clear that they are no longer interested in selling me.

"It's a problem, because I'm under contract for another year and, while I want to go, it's not possible unless Lazio agree."
