Goncalo Guedes says that he “always wanted to pick” Paris Saint-Germain, despite attracting attention from Manchester United.

Guedes joined French giants PSG for £25.5million in January, with the Benfica winger also a target for a number of other clubs.

Manchester City were interested, but it was United who were more heavily linked with the Portuguese star.

The 20-year-old explains that he considered joining United, but that he joined PSG to feel “more at home”.

“I always wanted to pick Paris,” Guedes told RMC Sport. “I know that English and French football are different but honestly, I think that for someone my age, for someone young, it was better to come to PSG because it’s a big club.

“Manchester would have helped me too, but I’d feel more at home here than in England.”
