I know from playing against his teams in the Eredivisie, the qualities that he has and what he demands of his players.

"Whilst I know that I am still young and will continue to develop, I can promise the United fans that I will leave everything on the pitch every time I pull on the red shirt. I'll always be thankful to Feyenoord for all they have given to me and my family.

"None of this would be possible if it wasn't for them. Now I'm ready to focus on the future with United, and help my new club achieve success."

Could Cristiano Ronaldo join Chelsea?

Rob Dawson speaks about the future of Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.

PAPER GOSSIP (by Nick Judd)

- Cristiano Ronaldo's desire to leave Manchester United has prompted suggestions that Chelsea are interested in taking him to London, but AS believes his agent Jorge Mendes is in talks with Barcelona. Mendes is meeting with Barca president Joan Laporta to discuss the possibility of the Portuguese star and former Real Madrid hero heading to Camp Nou this summer. The 37-year-old scored 24 goals in the Premier League and Champions League in 2021-22. His name isn't the only one on the agenda, with Mendes and Laporta also set to discuss Wolves' Ruben Neves, AC Milan's Rafael Leao and Man City's Bernardo Silva.

- Tottenham Hotspur are finalising the details of a loan move to bring defender Clement Lenglet to north London from Barcelona, according to Fabrizio Romano. Lenglet, 27, agreed personal terms last week, and it's now between the two clubs to finalise the terms of the move before it's made official. Spurs don't appear to be finished there either, though, for Sport are reporting that Antonio Conte is also looking to bring Memphis Depay to the club. Depay's contract runs out in a year's time, and the 28-year-old Netherlands international doesn't appear in Xavi's long-term plans. He made 38 appearances last season, but Barca are willing to accept an offer of €20m.

- Talented youngster Kenan Yildiz is being targeted by Juventus and Barcelona, with the Italians leading the chase for his signature, according to Fabrizio Romano. The 17-year-old midfielder has called time on his career at Bayern Munich and looks likely to turn down a new offer to stay. Although he has been tracked by Barca's coaches for some time, Juve are believed to be in the lead.

- Bayern Munich are keen to sign Matthijs de Ligt but the Juventus defender favours a move to Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail. They believe that the 22-year-old would rather move to London rather than Munich, with Manchester City with also said to be in the mix. The Blues have tabled a number of bids this summer, but are closing in on a move for €70m. Juventus are hoping they can drive up that price in an effort to replace the Netherlands defender with long-term target Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli.

- Soon after officially unveiling new addition Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal are now turning their attentions to Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to The Sun. The Gunners are believed to have made a bid for €55m for the central midfielder who has scored 48 goals and racked up 41 assists in 231 league appearances for Lazio. The 27-year-old Serbia international would be Arsenal's fifth signing of the summer, and a welcome addition as they look to add more goals from midfield.
