“I am extremely happy with how things have gone,” Young said. “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.”
