Adryan: Confirmed he had talks with Unit

Flamengo starlet Adryan has confirmed that he shunned interest from Manchester United before signing his new deal last year.

The midfielder is one of Brazil's top prospects and is a regular for the Samba nation at youth level.

The Red Devils are already well aware of Adryan and they opened talks with Flamengo last year.

However, instead of moving to Europe the 17-year-old penned a new deal in his homeland, and he has now confirmed that he did rebuff interest from Old Trafford.

"Man United did talk to me and showed interest," he told Globo Esporte.

"But I was not interested in moving at that point. Let's see if something adequate comes up in the future."

Asked about moving to Europe, Adryan - who has been likened to Brazilian legend Zico - insists he is not in any hurry to cross the Atlantic.

"I don't think about going to Europe so quickly, things need to be done step by step," he added.
