When asked about interest from Manchester City this summer, Ashley Young has admitted they wanted to sign him, although he had no interest in joining them once Manchester United made a move for him.

“That’s true, but as soon as I heard about Manchester United there was no other club for me,” said Young. “It’s Manchester United. They are the biggest club in the world, and I think if you ask anyone who they want to play for the majority will say: ‘Man United.’ The fan base, the team and what they have won in the past is amazing. I want to be part of that – and be able to bring the title back to United again and make history with a 20th. I feel I have settled straight away into the team, which for a club the size of Manchester United isn’t easy. But I believe in my ability and feel it was easy to fit in, especially as I know some of the boys and the team spirit they have.”
