Copenhagen fullback Varela hopes to face Man Utd in Europa League

FC Copenhagen fullback Guillermo Varela hopes to face former club Manchester United in the Europa League.

First, the Danes must get past Celtic in the last-32 while United take on Club Brugge.

Varela told The Sun: “It would be a dream to go back to Old Trafford. It would be a beautiful moment - I wait for this.

“Maybe we will get drawn to play Manchester United - we don't know. But if we do, it would be a dream.

“Maybe we will meet again soon. Maybe in the Europa League, maybe in the Premier League.

“I'm still only 26. I of course want to go back to the Premier League at some point.

“In the future, maybe I can come back and play for Manchester United - I hope.

“I would say thank you to the fans. I want to say thank you for a beautiful four years, thank you for your support."
