Athletic Bilbao striker Inaki Williams confirms Man Utd summer contact

Athletic Bilbao striker Inaki Williams has revealed summer contact with Manchester United.

Speaking to Cadena Ser, Williams has confirmed he did speak to United before he signed a new nine-year deal with the Basque giants.

"I had contact from Manchester United but I cannot tell you who it was," Williams said.

"My number one option has always been to stay at Athletic Club and to retire here. Joining Real Sociedad? No, I could never go there. 100 per cent."

The new deal, which takes Williams through until 2028, includes a £125m release clause.
