Liverpool star Sadio Mane could have been firing in the goals for Manchester United.
The 26-year-old has revealed how he held talks with the Iron Tulip over a move to Old Trafford while at Southampton.
He told SuperSport: "I could not believe it, because even some club wanted me like Manchester.
"The wrong team wanted me by the way — of course, United.
"I spoke with Van Gaal and they even made an offer, but for me it was not the right club and not the right moment.
"But with this, it's the right moment, the right coach and the right club.
"Yeah I spoke with him and Salzburg asked for £25million, but with all respect, I was not that good for £25m and that's why I didn't go there.
"We know it before he came here and that's exactly how the boss is. He's always laughing but he can be hard in training."
