Manchester United have signed Argentina defender Gabriel Heinze from Paris St Germain for £6m.

The 26-year-old has signed a five-year contract at Old Trafford.

“I have committed myself for the next five seasons with Manchester United. But I have loads of emotion about leaving PSG. I owe them a lot,” said the defender.

“But my dream is coming true by joining Man Utd. I am going to keep working hard on the other side of the Channel.”

“We have not yet discussed which position I will play,” he said.

“I don’t know whether it will be in central defence or left-back. All they said is that they wanted me.

“They have shown great motivation to snatch my services even though I did not talk directly with Sir Alex Ferguson.”
