Sheriff hero Edmund Addo wants Man Utd transfer after incredible win over Real Madrid in Champions League

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE history-maker Edmund Addo has sent Manchester United a ‘come and get me’ appeal.

The Ghanaian, 21, helped Sheriff Tiraspol record an astonishing 2-1 win over Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Goals from Jasurbek Yakhshiboev and Sebastien Thill cancelled out a Karim Benzema penalty to give the Moldovan title winners all three points.

It’s arguably the biggest shock in Champions League history, with Real boss Carlo Ancelotti deploying Chelsea icon Eden Hazard in a full-strength XI.

Addo previously helped Tiraspol beat Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 in their opening game, leaving the minnows three points clear at the top of Group D.

And the midfielder told Ghanaian radio station Joy FM: “Ideally, my dream is to play for Manchester United.

“Which player doesn’t want to be in one of the strongest football clubs in Europe?  I am no exception.”

Addo spent three seasons with Slovak top-flight club Senica before joining Tiraspol in July.


He began his career with home-country club Mighty Cosmos.

The defensive midfielder’s recent heroics have since put him on the brink of a national team call-up.

And Addo could end up facing Man Utd later this season if Tiraspol continue their good form and the Red Devils get their act together.

United, who lost their UCL opener to Young Boys, face Villarreal on Wednesday in a repeat of last season’s Europa League final.

Addo added: “Since childhood I have been rooting for the Red Devils. But today you have to work hard.

“I strive to get a chance to prove myself in the Champions League. Now this is the most important thing.”
