'I love playing football and my aim now is to help the team to win trophies and repay the fans for their unrivalled support.

'I know that everyone at the club shares this vision and will give everything to get Manchester United back to where it belongs.

'I'm still young and know I can improve further but with the help of the boss and his coaching staff, I believe that only good things are ahead for this great club.'
