"I was thinking about playing for France when I was with Fulham,"

"Now that I'm on my way to Manchester United I might be more exposed to the media. If I play well then I might get the opportunity to win my first senior cap. Of course Les Bleus are an objective for me. I want to adapt as fast as possible even if I know that there will have a lot of competition. This is not like with Fulham," he said.
