Stoe keeper Jack Butland has been discussing his ambitions to play in the Champions League while declaring Manchester United to be “the biggest club in the world”.
Butland missed all the but the final five games of last season due to a serious ankle injury initially sustained while on England duty in March 2016.
Now the 24-year-old is back to full fitness, the Stoke stopper is looking to get his career back on track, with his targets set.
“My ambitions are to be the Stoke number one and England number one,” he told Talksport. “But there are other things I want to achieve in my career as well.
“I want to play in the Champions League and I want to win trophies. There’s no reason why we can’t win trophies at Stoke, we’ll try and win some cups and do as well as we can, but I obviously have ambitions.
“If it’s the right move at the right time, you never know. You always have to think about these things.
“A club like Manchester United, or whoever it may be… United are, for me, the biggest club in the world and you have to take those things in consideration.
“But if it’s right, if it’s not, I’ll make those decisions at the time.”
“I’m back in a Stoke kit at the minute and I’m focused on doing as well as I can in pre-season and the season ahead, and what will be, will be.
“It’s all just speculation and rumours at the moment, and I don’t get into that too deeply.”
