United finally reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for a £72.9m deal for the England international, who has agreed to a £350,000-a-week five-year deal.

"To be fair, I don't want to talk about Manchester United. Right now I just want to focus on England,” he told BBC Radio5 Live before concluding, "I'm feeling over the moon. Today was must-win and I'm just happy to have got an opportunity to play. This is a special moment for me."
