Club Brugge midfielder Groeneveld: I turned down Man City

Club Brugge midfielder Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld admits Manchester City wanted to sign him.

Groeneveld, 21, left NEC Nijmegen for Club Brugge this past summer.

"Club really wanted me. I like that attention. When I came here, it was immediately clear to me. Compared to all other clubs that were interested, including Manchester City, I can best develop here," Groeneveld told Voetbal International.

"They (Dutch clubs) reported, but I consciously chose Bruges.

"There was also interest from Germany, England and France. I follow my feelings, always. I cannot explain how that works, but here it was just right."
