Arsenal striker:

"When I got that approach from United, I was like 'OK, it's a good team, one of the biggest teams in the world — why not?' It was very flattering for me and gave me confidence that I am a good footballer because, if a team like Manchester want to get me, it proves I'm doing things right. But don't forget I am already at a massive club and we have a fantastic team.

"I had a good discussion with the boss Arsene Wenger, we finally sorted everything out and I was very happy. The boss gave me confidence and the guarantee I will play. I don't know if what prompted United's interest was my winner at Old Trafford. But I hope to do that again on Saturday. I did the right thing in signing a new deal with Arsenal — a four-year contract. I am just like a baby boy who was born in this club. It's a family team, everyone loves me — and the fans, the players, the boss . . . we are all like brothers."
