"I appreciate the good words about myself that Mourinho speaks", he said. The player himself has revealed it in an interview with Goal Brasil this Wednesday, saying it's true that Manchester United went after him.
I assure you that because last season we finished contract of five, six players, and for six years Manchester City hadn't bought full-backs.
