Monaco full-back Benjamin Henrichs is pleased to be linked with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Premier League greats Manchester United. The German came through the ranks at Bayer Leverkusen and has been constantly linked with elite clubs across Europe following his brilliant display at the Stade Louis II. Nevertheless, the 23-year-old says the reported interest is evidence that he is on the right track. "The fact that you are associated with such top clubs indicates that you have performed well and that your performances are rewarded," he told Goal. "I think you should set goals. When I still was still in school in Leverkusen, I lived in Cologne and used to go past the BayArena by train every day. I always thought: 'Please, dear God, let me play there' - and now I'm a professional and living my dream. "It's important that you know where you want to go. That you have a goal in mind and that you are able to give everything, even when you are not playing."
