“I have worked with many great managers in my career and, having met with Erik and heard his ideas, I can’t wait to work closely with him, his staff and my new team-mates in the coming years.
“I’m ending one beautiful journey in Madrid whilst starting another in Manchester as determined as ever to win football matches, win trophies and make our fans proud by bringing success to this great club.
“Everybody knows the history of Manchester United, the significance of the club, around the world and what it means to its supporters.
“To represent United is an honour and I am ready to give everything to help the team achieve our ambitions”.
Along with the new signing, Man United’s Football Director John Murtough also welcomed the arrival;
