Man United transfers: Alessio Cerci admits he is keen to test himself in the Champions League
Alessio Cerci has opened the door to a possible transfer to Manchester United by admitting that he is keen to test himself in the Champions League.
The 26-year-old Torino forward has been linked with a switch to the Red Devils in recent weeks after scoring nine goals and making seven assists in 17 Serie A appearances.
Italy international Cerci has also been touted as a possible target for Italian clubs Juventus and Roma.
And the player, who would be eligible to feature in Uefa club competitions for a new team should he seal a January move, has revealed that he now feels ready to make the step up to the Champions League.
“I feel ready for the Champions League – I have matured,” Cerci told TransferMarketWeb.
“I think it’s the right time to make the leap. I want to get there, even before the World Cup. Roma? It’s no secret to go back to where I grew up. Now it’s a dream, but also it’s a goal to go to Juventus.”
