Edwin Van Der Sar wants to avoid Chelsea and Tottenham in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
United joined Spurs in the last eight by beating Marseille yesterday and Chelsea are expected to follow suit after playing Copenhagen at Stamford Bridge tonight.
But keeper Van der Sar was clear he has no desire to face a Premier League rival in the next round when the draw is made in Nyon, Switzerland, on Friday.
When asked if he would perfer an English team or an overseas side his answer was clear: "Foreign team, definitely!"
However the veteran, who plans to retire at the end of the season, is hopeful United can give him a dramatic farewell in the final at Wembley on May 28.
"That's the aim, of course," he said. "It would be a great way to finish."
The Dutchman paid tribute to young striker Javier Hernandez, who is just starting his career at Old Trafford as van der Sar ends his. The Mexican scored twice against Marseille to take his tally to 16 already this season.
Van der Sar added: "He's been phenomenal, we're very happy with him of course. He knows where the ball is going to come and he makes the runs. Others can find him easily. He's got desire to be there at the right place."
