“When you open an English newspaper, no matter which one, you will find an article on United, either a photo of a player leaving the training ground or a transfer rumour," he told L'Equipe.

“With the help of my entourage, I have learned to take a step back from all that, otherwise you risk getting yourself into difficulties. That is the downside of playing at such a club."
