The Czech forward made the move to Roma in the summer after a stellar debut season at Sampdoria.
Schick scored 11 goals in 32 appearances last season and was set to join Juventus but a medical showed a heart condition, leading to the Turin club pulling out of a deal.
However, Roma saw no problem and landed the 21-year-old on loan with an obligation to buy.
And now the former Sparta Prague man has stated his ultimate ambition is playing for a big club like Man Utd.
In an interview with Reporter magazine, he said: “Money? I take it as motivation, and I hope that in a few years I can move to an even bigger club where logically I’ll be paid even more – that motivation has always helped me a lot.

“It’s not really possible to move much higher [than Roma] but there are a few clubs… let’s say Real Madrid, Barcelona or Manchester United.”
Schick, who has five caps for Czech Republic, also indicated he was angry with Juventus after his failed move.
“When I came back from my holiday, my agent said we had to go to Turin for another medical.
“I told him I wasn’t going anywhere, that it was already getting on my nerves and I’m not flying to Turin, it would be useless.
“It didn’t matter to me anymore, I was a little bit angry. The deliberations were unnecessary, and in the middle of July my £22million release clause ceased to apply.
“So as far as I was concerned the President of Sampdoria could name his price and put my value as high as possible. That’s what he did, he eventually got it up to £35m.
“When I signed I felt great relief that I could finally concentrate only on my football.”
Whilst there are no plans for Man Utd to make a move, the Prague-born striker is highly regarded in Italy.
