"You could see the qualities he has as, for me, he is the right person for this club," Rooney told MUTV. "It's great for everybody. It lifts everyone as it shows the intention the club has got to bring in a player of that quality.
"It's a lot of money to spend on one player but he's worth that money. Having seen him in the last couple of days in training, I've seen the quality he has got and he will be a great signing for us. He is great to have in the team."
