Attacking midfielder reveals why he turned down the possibility of playing for Manchester United


New Liverpool signing Sadio Mane has confirmed that Manchester United made contact to sign him.

The 24-year-old completed his £34million transfer from Southampton last month and signed a five-year contract with the Reds.

But he revealed that many other clubs were interested in securing his services but he rejected all other offers because he wanted to play under manager Jurgen Klopp.

"Yes, it was true [Manchester United were interested]," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"There was interest from a lot of clubs, not just Manchester United, but as soon as I knew Liverpool were interested I just felt it was the right club with the right coach. It was right for me to come here.

"Liverpool are a massive club with a big history that has won many trophies over the years and as soon as I was told of the possibility to come here and I knew the manager wanted me I said yes.

"It was the right move. I recognise the size of the club and to progress to another level as a player this was the club and the moment for me. It was a step I needed to make."
