Flamengo midfielder Adryan has confirmed that he had held talks with Manchester United over a possible move last summer before opting to remain in Brazil. He 17-year-old turned down the opportunity to follow the Da Silva twins and Anderson from Brazil to Manchester as he doesn’t feel like he’s read for a move to Europe yet.
”Manchester United did talk to me and showed interest,” Adryan told Globo Esporte. ”But I was not interested in moving at that point. Let’s see if something adequate comes up in the future. ‘I don’t think about going to Europe so quickly, things need to be done step by step.”
