It’s like being a kid in a sweet shop. This [playing football] is having fun, enjoying myself. That’s what I am doing, I’m just having fun.

On and off the pitch, everyone [at Manchester United] has been helpful. I have settled in well.

I think every day tells me that I made the right move. It’s nothing bad about Arsenal. No player is bigger than the club, Arsenal will always challenge for trophies and be up there. It was just that after eight years I was ready to move on and try something else.

When I extended my deal a couple of years ago at Arsenal, I felt that was the right move for me - to stay and play because I wasn’t finished there. Now, since last summer, I wanted to go for a big challenge, and this was the biggest challenge for me.

I do feel that this is exactly the right time to be here. I don’t think it would have been better to come here earlier. Everything has gone this way for a reason.

I found that challenge at Manchester United. I do feel that I am surrounded by champions.

Arsenal are a great club and I always had a good feeling but after eight years, sometimes you feel that you need a new challenge.

Wayne Rooney is a world class player. Scholes and Giggs are world class and have proved it for 20 years. They had a big impact.

This is the biggest challenge for me in my football life.

For me it’s a big challenge to do it together with the players here. Every single one is very helpful. It’s like a family club.
