Asked if United had been in the running for his signature, he said: "Yes, they entered into the equation but I preferred to choose Man City because I think it is the club of the future.

"They have invested a lot in the last three years and now they have got the team that can fight for every competition. I want to be part of the history. That's why I made this choice and I'm happy about it.

"I am convinced that we can win the Premier League. That is why I chose this club. I am really confident about what we can achieve together."
