"It’s an absolute honour to be here. I had a fantastic time playing for Sir Alex in front of 76,000 of the world’s best fans, so I’m really pleased to be back at Old Trafford."

"Timothy is still waiting for international clearance but he looks a really mature and talented player. He covers the ground well and I think he can make a big impact at our level. He can play in a number of positions - centre-back, midfield or full-back, so I think he’s another good, adaptable and highly-talented player."

Angel Di Maria’s chip in the defeat to Leicester has been named Manchester United’s Goal of the Month for September 2014.

"It is a source of motivation. When you wear a shirt that’s been worn by the likes of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, it’s something you’re always going to be pleased about. The fact that the club have chosen to give me that shirt number also gives me a huge confidence boost, so that’s why I’m very happy to have this number."

"We get on very well, he was one of the reasons I came here. I’m very grateful to him because he wanted to sign me. That makes me happy. Also, he’s a person who wants to win all the time, and to take the club back into the Champions League as quickly as possible, so the focus is very much on that."
"In every training session and every match we want to give 100 per cent. The sessions are different because here football is a lot more competitive, so you feel the physical aspects and the contact more. As a result you need to be 100 per cent fit all the time and ready for anything. I really like that. I like it when the manager takes games, and when we do work on finishing or free-kicks. It motivates you to train harder."

"Before we knew I was coming to Manchester, he told me it’s a massive club, I would be very happy here and it would be good for me. At that time we didn’t know for sure that I was coming or not, so we didn’t go into great detail, but what he did say helped me greatly to make my decision."

"Louis van Gaal has made a lot of changes and, thinking about that, actually maybe he’s doing the right and correct thing, to clear the decks and build his own team - because he’s got the experience and coaching ability to do that. He’s got the reputation to do that. The way he’s approached it I think has been brilliant.”

"He’s brilliant. He’s always giving me advice, telling me how to improve my game, my movement. He’s a great manager who always wants to win and that’s the message he gets across to us. He wants the best and that’s what he demands from his team."

"It’s the biggest league in the Europe and probably the world. I’ve always loved watching Premier League football and wanted to play here. The football is very direct, quick and physical, which makes it attractive for the fans. I really like playing here - I’m relishing the challenge."

"I always had a lot of respect for United. I knew that it was one of the best clubs in the world and one of the most recognised and most followed - I saw the statistics for that. It’s a dream for me to be here but I have to work very hard if I want to be an important player at this great club."
"I have really enjoyed things and I am very happy, and I now understand how big the club is. In America on tour there were a lot of people supporting us and now in Manchester, when we play at Old Trafford and you see fans around the city, I understand even more."

"He has helped me lots. He told where to put my shoes and all those little things you need to know when you’re new. I imagine it can be difficult if you do not have someone to help you at a new club."

"My whole childhood revolved around the game and I always wanted to play professionally. I never had a back-up plan for what I might do if things didn’t work out at United. It was always about playing football for me and I was determined to make it happen. It was basically football or nothing, which might have been risky but that was how I saw it. Thankfully, it seems to be working out for me."

"I think I am playing the best football of my career. I have been here for three years and in the beginning it was difficult. Now I am ready for everything."
"That experience at the start helped me to be the player and man I am now. When you have bad moments you have to improve. You have to become stronger to deal with it and I believe I have become stronger. I am a much better goalkeeper now."
"Those early days were difficult for me and my family. But when you play for a big club like Manchester United it is normal when you don’t play well. I am glad it happened in some ways because the criticism makes you stronger. A goalkeeper is a difficult position and you make mistakes. It is normal. But you have to be strong in your mind to get through it all and get better."

"Games like this helps your confidence grow. It was probably one of my best performances for Manchester United. I was really happy about that. Tim Howard came up to me after the game and said I had played a fantastic game."
"I didn’t win the match. It was the team who won the match. We scored and defended well. It was about the team and not just me."
- David de Gea (Premier League 2014/15: Manchester United 2 - Everton 1)
