Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure has revealed that his target is to secure a transfer to a Champions League playing team.
He made this known in an interview with French publication Canal+
Doucoure has established himself as a Premier League midfielder and the Frenchman is key to the aspirations of Watford who are in a big battle to avoid the relegation zone at the end of the current league campaign.
The Watford player is a major transfer target for both Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
Abdoulaye Doucoure tried to leave the Hornets last summer but he was unable to get his wish.
Manchester United could be his next destination with the Red Devils struggling in the midfield department. The Old Trafford club has struggled in the midfield area this season especially with the injuries to key midfielders like Scotland international Scott McTominay and French national team player Paul Pogba.

Both players have not played for the Red Devils since December after picking up injuries in the same game.
Paul Pogba struggled for fitness throughout the second half of last season with just eight games played until the Newcastle United clash in the Premier League on Boxing Day.
He was hit by several ankle injury setbacks before his surgery earlier this year. Pogba is now expected to return to the Manchester United squad between now and the end of this month.
For Scott McTominay, the Scottish international suffered a knee injury during that Magpies game until recently when he returned to training.
The Manchester United Academy graduate was part of the Red Devils squad that travelled to Spain last week as part of the winter break granted by the Premier League.
Scott McTominay is now expected to return to the Manchester United squad for the crucial Chelsea clash on Monday night.
