Vloet reveals Man Utd dream

PSV Eindhoven forward Rai Vloet has revealed he dreams about playing for Manchester United someday.

The 20-year-old is considered to be a bright talent but he played just 78 minutes of first-team football last season.

Man United have a history of signing PSV's players with Jaap Stam, Park Ji-sung, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Memphis Depay all moving to Old Trafford in recent years.

Former Manchester United midfielder and current ambassador, Park Ji-Sung, has compared new signing Memphis Depay to Cristiano Ronaldo.

He's still a young player – only 21 years old – but I played with him and he has so much potential: he has strength, passing ability and skill.

Having retired at the end of last season, the next step for former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji Sung is to wed his long-time partner Kim Min Ji on July 27th.

The couple have sent out the invites and, as you can see, they definitely fall into the "friggin' swish" category with a little pop-out Old Trafford and everything.

The Canadian SB Nation sites are atwitter at the prospect of former Manchester United star Park Ji-Sung ("Korean naming convention) joining our fair little league. With Sharlie Joseph playing pretty well in the early going, Seattle may not be a likely destination for the South Korean national.

When Queens Park Rangers' eager communications department described new signing Park Ji-Sung as a "global phenomenon" it was easy to mock. After all, a quick Google search of the phrase mentions the decline of the honey bee but little of the similarly busy Korean midfielder.

And yet, who hasn't at some time got carried away with outrageous optimism about their club's summer signings?
