The former Arsenal and Barcelona forward has appeared in 3 matches at United so far and has scored once. He thinks claims that he left the North London club for the better as he is now at the “biggest club” in the Premier League.
“I think that Manchester United, since I was young – and I’m not just saying this because I’m here, I’m an honest guy and I never lie – I think it’s the biggest club in England. That’s what I think,” he told Sky Sports News.
“I came here to win [things]. I left Arsenal because I wanted to develop and learn as a player, and get to experience a new club. Manchester United are a huge club on the global stage. I came here to win everything. Otherwise I wouldn’t have come here.”
