In an interview after Manchester United’s Community Shield victory, Mourinho stated: “I think United is the perfect club to bring him to the level that he wants to be.”
“The Premier League is the perfect habitat for that. If you want to be the best player in the world, I think if you go to Barcelona or to Real Madrid, you are in trouble. Because I don’t think the other two big guys will let you develop to that level.”
“Here he has the conditions to develop in the most seen worldwide championship, which is absolutely incredible, with a team that wants to bring Man United to the top again.”
“So we have everything to give him and we know the reasons why he wants to come to us. Money he will get from any big club. That’s not the point.”
“He comes because he knows the club, knows the city, knows many of the players. He wants to be an important part of the Man Utd project. So hopefully everything goes well and he comes into our team.”
