Barca Star Sets Sights On Maiden UCL Trophy

In the wake of his team's goalless LaLiga draw on the weekend, an FC Barcelona star has now insisted the Spanish giants have their sights set on Manchester United, saying the "dream is the UEFA Champions League".

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde made a number of changes to the side that secured a 1-0 victory over the Red Devils in the first leg of their UCL quarter-final tie at Old Trafford last Wednesday, resting the likes of Gerard Pique, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez for the Blaugrana's 0-0 draw away at Huesca on Saturday.

Chile international Arturo Vidal, who was handed a starting berth on the weekend, has since commented on his side's performance against Huesca, suggesting that Barca had already begun to shift their focus to the return clash against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men on Tuesday.

"Our goal is to win the league and we are close on that. But the dream is the Champions League," Vidal told Marca.

"I think it was a fair draw at the end. The players who do not always play regularly performed well today."

Barcelona currently sit at the summit of the LaLiga table, nine points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid and 14 points ahead of third-placed Real Madrid.

Vidal will be looking to clinch his first-ever UCL winner's medal after enduring the heartache of being a losing finalist in 2015 with Juventus, who lost to Barcelona.
