I so happy when the Chairman accepted the deal,” said Fellaini. “I talked with the manager [Roberto Martinez] because it was a big opportunity for me to join one of the biggest clubs in the world. My objective is to win trophies. I play football for this. With Man United, I have a big chance to win something.”
