Jose Mourinho has admitted he wants Manchester United to face a Premier League rival in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The draw for the last eight of the competition takes place at 11am on Friday with United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham, Juventus, Barcelona, Ajax and Porto in the pot.
United secured their place in the last eight, following a stunning comeback against Paris Saint-Germain.
When asked about his ideal quarter-final line-up, Mourinho told RT: “I would like English teams to play against each other, without any kind of preference.
“But I would do two matches between English teams, which would mean two teams would be in the semi-finals.
“I think if the draw gives something like Manchester City versus Manchester United, or Tottenham against Liverpool, for example, I think would be absolutely fantastic matches.
“My second choice would be not by tactical or emotional reasons but by what I think would be fantastic extra motivation I would do Ajax versus Porto, as that would mean one of them to reach the semi-finals.
“They are doing so, so well during the competition that I think it would be amazing for one of them.
“It would be amazing for Portugal as a country, Netherlands as a country, to have a team in the semi-final.
