"I feel great. Manchester is one of the biggest clubs in the world and I'm very happy because I'm now part of this great club, this great group," he said.

"My wish was to train with Jose and of course when you have a coach like him and a club like Manchester, you don't need to think a lot. My decision was very easy.

"He's a great coach. When I worked with him before, he always took the best from me and I improved a lot with him. 

"When the coach wants you to come to the club, it gives you more motivation, more possibility and I will for sure give my best to show that I deserve to be at this club and part of the group.

"It's very important to come as soon as possible, to have time to adapt to the coach's wishes and new team-mates and I'm happy I'll have some days to train with them before the first big game, against Real Madrid [in the UEFA Super Cup on August 8].

"It will be a great game. It's going to be interesting, I think all [of] the world will be watching. They are Champions League winners and it's going to be a hard game but I'm sure we'll be ready.

"I'm sure that this season we can do big things."
