Ghanian star Emmanuel Boateng is eyeing a move to Premier League giants Manchester United or La Liga Champions Barcelona in the near future.

The 22-year-old striker scored a hat-trick in Levante’s 5-4 win against Barcelona in April that ended the Catalans’ long unbeaten run and he aiming to join a bigger club within the next few years.

The forward's fine form even saw him earn an international call-up with Ghana. Boateng scored a penalty on his debut as his nation beat Japan 2-0.

Jose Mourinho is keen on signing a back-up forward for Romelu Lukaku and has shown interest in Mario Mandzukic and Marko Arnautovic.

"I always dream big, I see myself playing in one of the great clubs of the world in the next five years.

"Big clubs like Manchester United and Barcelona excite me. Marca quotes Boateng as saying.

Manchester United sign Brazilan star Fred for a fee of £52m Fred on a five-year deal and with Porto defender Dalot is set to follow.
