The rising French star is a big admirer of van Nistelrooy, and would like a move to the English giants.
Gignac told Skysports.com: “I won’t tell you that I try to copy him, but I am a huge fan of the great Ruud van Nistelrooy.
“I appreciated this player a lot. My dream is to be just like him.
“France and England are the places where I want to play football.

“Replacing the great Ruud at Manchester United would be the bomb. Yes, wearing the number 10 at Old Trafford…”
