Sebastien Frey has declared that he will leave Parma in the summer.
Sebastien Frey has declared that he will leave Parma in the summer and would definitely consider a move to Manchester United.
The highly-rated French keeper has been targeted by United for a number of years and, considering the fact that the Old Trafford outfit are likely to be seeking a new number one in the summer, Frey will undoubtedly feature again in the gossip columns.
Internazionale are also tracking the Gialloblu keeper and a desire to remain in Italy could mean the Giuseppe Meazza side are slight favourites to land the 24-year-old.
The ex-Cannes man played for Inter before arriving at Ennio Tardini.
"This is my last season at Parma," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I made sacrifices this year because everyone knows what situation Parma are in.
"I feel good here. I have a contract until 2007 but I can't deny that my dream is to have an important experience and I think I deserve it.
"I have already been at Inter but I was young. Now, with [Massimo] Moratti's esteem, it would be beautiful but it's hard to think about it.
"I see the problems facing Francesco Toldo. He is criticised and jeered for his first mistake. I confess I have a little fear and many things would have to change in this aspect.
"The English idea is charming. Surely, Manchester are a big side but, in these years, I've become really attached to Italy.
"I don't deny I could also stay in Italy.
"I admit I would like it."
Frey is now likely to remain silent until the close season as he focuses on life at Parma.
"I can't think about these things - the future and what it will be - until the end of the season," he stated. "Because we will struggle until the end of the season to stay up.
"It's a matter of respect towards the club and my team-mates.
"I don't know what I will do. It isn't known yet and it is too soon to tell it."
