Firstly Raphael, welcome to Manchester United. How does it feel to be able to call yourself a Manchester United player?
“Thank you. I’m very happy and very excited to start this new journey for me. It was a very good adventure with my old club, but now it’s a new start for me and I’m very happy to be here.”
