Joe Hugill on Man Utd move: They suit my style

Joe Hugill admits joining Manchester United has been a dream come true.

While with Sunderland, Arsenal, Tottenham, Wolves and Leeds were all interested in the then-16-year-old as well as an unnamed Bundesliga club but he chose the Theatre of Dreams instead.

He told the Secret Scout: "The opportunity to play for United was just crazy.

"You've got to think about your football. United suited my style. At Sunderland, it was quite defensive, but United is attack, attack, attack. As a forward, scoring goals, [in this team], it comes like an instinct.

"We just felt Man United was the right club and I never looked back! Playing for a club like Man United is every kids dream. Signing felt as surreal as anything."
