Rio: Seriously, you just showed me them. I want at least two.
Young: I will throw you one. Make sure you are awake or I will hit your head.
“You just look at the club’s history and the titles they have won. I am an ambitious person and I wanted to win titles and play in the biggest competitions. Obviously United are winning Premier Leagues and playing in Champions Leagues every year. For me, it was a no-brainer. The manager, as well, the players, I just wanted to go there straight away and stamp my authority.”
“The day I signed was a great moment for me and I wanted to get straight into pre-season training and get the ball rolling. You feel the difference from the time you sign for United. We went on a pre-season tour of America. Every stage that we went to, it was fantastic the amount of fans that were there cheering. United, as a club, is global. Everybody around the world knows about the club.”

“I am extremely happy with how things have gone. It is an easy place to settle. There is a great team spirit and they welcomed me with open arms. I knew a few of the players who have played with England, so it was easier. You go into training every day with a smile on your face.”
“From the time I signed, I said playing for United was going to be a challenge. For me, as a player, I always want to challenge myself at the highest level. Being able to do that at the biggest club in the world, there was no thinking of who I was going to sign for. It was always going to be United for me.”
