New Arsenal signing Aaron Ramsey admits he's a Manchester United fan.

Wales Under-21 midfielder Ramsey, 17, could have opted for Old Trafford instead of Arsenal, but the lure of working with Wenger, who has nurtured so many talents, proved decisive.

He said: "I supported Manchester United as a youngster but once I had spoken to Arsene Wenger, the way he described the Arsenal set-up and their plans for the future impressed me.

"I just had a gut instinct that the right move for me would be joining Arsenal. It was my decision.

"I thought about where the best place would be for me to develop as a player, and that was Arsenal.

"I don't think too many people wouldn't look forward to coming under the guidance of Arsene Wenger and playing next to someone like Cesc Fabregas.

"Arsene is a great manager and Cesc can make something happen out of nothing on the pitch."
