Alexis dreams of Champions League glory with Man Utd

Alexis Sanchez says he dreams of winning the Champions League ahead of Manchester United's last-16 tie with PSG.

The first leg will be played on Tuesday at Old Trafford, with PSG rueing the absence of injured star attackers Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

The Chilean failed to win Europe's premier competition at Arsenal and Barcelona, but hopes he can claim the trophy at United.

"The Champions League is a dream for any footballer," Sanchez told the Mirror.

"I lived with that dream at Barcelona and saw what it was like. I hope I can win it one day and why not here?

"We have got through the group stage and PSG are next. It's a big test but it's 180 minutes of football - anything can happen.

"United are a club with so much history and are capable of beating any rival.

"If we win at Old Trafford and we don't concede, then I think we would be favourites for the second leg.

"I think we can do that and I see this United team with a lot of chances to score in Paris."
