Chicharito joined the club from Guadalajara and also revealed his shock at Sir Alex Ferguson's side wanting to sign him.

"My dad told me: 'Hey, Manchester United want you,' and I told my dad: 'No way dad, you're teasing me'," he told ESPN.

"One night I was playing video games with the club, with [Wayne] Rooney, and two days later you tell me that the club wants to sign me? I told him: 'No dad, it's not a true. Impossible'.

"It is like bittersweet. It was all amazing and then on the plane I asked myself: And now what?"
