, he said:

“I'm settled here, thanks to my team-mates and obviously my family from Uruguay, I am now feeling at home in this country, which is all new to me.

"Most of the South American team-mates are the ones who I am more close to but, obviously, I am all fine with everyone. Every team-mate here is very kind - in the first team, and also the Under-23s who I started playing with. I have met lots of guys who were very nice with me and that is very important.

“It's been amazing to train with guys like Rashford, Pogba, Mata and Edi, who is very close friends with me. It's amazing for me because I watched them on TV and now I am practicing with them.

"The intensity, the high quality they have, it's great for me to play with them and I improve a lot. All the time, I speak with Edi and he is a very nice person. He is always trying to be around me, giving me advice and everything that I need. He is there to help me and that is very important for me. I am very happy with that.

“I know he is one of the best players in the world, and one of the all-time best players from Uruguay, but he is also a very nice person.”

"He is giving me advice and asking me how I am doing and how I am feeling. That, for me, is very important and I am really thankful to him.

“For me, it’s going to be a dream to have a chance in the first team and to fight for a place, and that Manchester United are going to the top. That is my biggest dream.

“Yes, that it what I am working on and, hopefully, I am going to have it.”
