Aubey fancies United move

Toulouse defender Lucien Aubey has issued something of a "come and get me" plea to Manchester United.
Although in no rush to leave the French club, the France Under-21 international has indicated that he would love to play for United or Milan if he was to depart Ligue 1.
The news will interest Sir Alex Ferguson, who has reportedly had the 21-year-old watched four times recently.
"Clubs I dream of? In France, without hesitating, and being Parisian, I will say Paris Saint Germain," he said in an interview with Jeunes Citoyens Supporters.
"For foreign clubs, I have two sides - Milan and Manchester United."
Although it has been reported that United would want him as cover for injured left back Gabriel Heinze, a position The Red Devils are struggling with, he would rather play at centre back.
"Without hesitating [I am more comfortable] in central defence," he added.
"I am anxious to be a 'clean' defender. My role models are Alessandro Nesta or Fabio Canavarro.
"My qualities are my speed and power. For my defects, I tend to want to dribble when it is not necessary. I must also improve the quality of my passing."
Aubey was born in Togo but represents France as he spent little time in his country of birth, although he has not ruled out switching allegiance in the future.
"For the moment, I don't know," he commented. "If I do not play anymore in the international team, I maybe will play for my country of origin - Togo."
