It is a real honour to continue to represent this amazing club and our incredible fans. I have been at Manchester United for five years and I am proud to call Old Trafford my home.

I am looking forward to working with Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer) and his fantastic coaching staff; the vision that they have for the club is truly exciting and I am so happy that I will be a part of that.

Juan is the ultimate professional and one of the most intelligent players I have worked with. He is a great example to our younger players in his approach.

He understands what it means to be a Manchester United player and has embraced everything about this great club.
