The Belgian international, who joins the Red Devils on a £75m move from Everton, said: “I’ve always wanted the opportunity since a child, when they came calling I didn’t have to think twice. I’m really delighted to hopefully be a part of their history.

“I’ve always said I want to play for a team that is challenging for every trophy that there is, – he added – I think Manchester United want to be that dominant force. If you look at the history it says enough”.

“To become part of a club like them is something I really wanted and I am thankful for the opportunity they gave me. Now it’s time to work hard, harder than I did before, and I am willing to do it. Hopefully it will come a good way.”

A sad day for many football fans around the world: little hero and Sunderland huge fan Braedley Lowery has passed away this afternoon.

Bradley was only 6 and lost his fight against neuroblastoma.

He became- unfortunately-famous for his fight because he was a football fan, but above all a die-hard Sunderland fan and in the last two years he became a sort of Black Cats mascot.

Last december he was the protagonist of the pre-match when Chelsea visited the Stadium of Light: he was playing with the players on the pitch during the warm-up and he kicked a penalty, with fans in the stadium chanting his name.

He had a special bond with Sunderland striker Jermaine Defoe who became his “best friend” and was often visiting him at the hospital or at home: Defoe was also with Bradley when he was England mascot at Wembley last March and their hug during the national anthem touched many people around the world.

Chelsea remembered Bradley with a couple of tweets:

Schermata 07-2457942 alle 19.45.50 Schermata 07-2457942 alle 19.46.06

This is the post that Bradley’s mum shared on his official Facebook page to announce the passing of the little hero:

My brave boy has went with the angels today 07/07/17 at 13:35, in mammy and daddies arms surrounded by his family.

He was our little superhero and put the biggest fight up but he was needed else where.

There are no words to describe how heart broken we are.

Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words.

Sleep tight baby boy and fly high with them angels

Our thoughts and prayers are with Bradley’s family and friend in this hard time: his courage, passion and smile will be remembered forever.
