“I want to continue to progress my career and joining United is the ideal place for me to do that. I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life and also looking forward to learning from the world-class players and management at the club.”

The 19-year-old becomes the second signing of Louis van Gaal’s United reign, with Ander Herrera having completed his move to the club on Thursday.
