Noam Emeran has revealed why rejected Barcelona and PSG to secure a move to Manchester United.

The Mancunian giants successfully won the tight race to secure the services of the 16-year-old starlet back in January, beating several powerhouses from all across Europe in the process.

After impressing the Red Devils during a trial in the north-west back when he was still at his former club Amiens, Emeran has now signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Old Trafford outfit.

The versatile forward, who considers Anthony Martial as one of his role models, and can play on the left as well as the right wing, is expected to develop at the club’s famous academy, under the leadership of Nicky Butt.

Following the completion of his switch to England, Emeran confirmed that he did indeed turn down two of the biggest clubs on the continent in favour of a move to Manchester United.

Manchester United were more convincing than Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona,’ the player told Le Parisien. ‘The choice was made with my family and with my lawyer.’

Emeran further revealed how the Reds’ legend, Wayne Rooney, played a major part in helping him make his decision, as he added: ‘He (Rooney) told me: a player’s career choice ends up being good or bad depending on his determination.

‘I understood that I needed to demand more from myself. I’m living a dream, but I need to stay grounded because the final goal is far from being reached. I’ll need to work even harder to make it at Manchester United.’
