Marouane Fellaini admits David Moyes had a big impact on his decision to join Manchester United and says he has moved to Old Trafford to win trophies.
The Belgian international was the subject of a failed bid by the Premier League champions last week, as part of an attempted move to sign both he and Everton team-mate Leighton Baines.
But with time running out before the transfer window closed, United were finally able to seal a deal and take the midfielder to Manchester.
Fellaini moves to Old Trafford in a £27.5million deal and the move took until 2am to finally be ratified by officials, with the relevant paperwork going through just before the 11pm deadline on Monday.
The 25-year-old is delighted to have finally ended the speculation over his future and is very much looking forward to work again with his former Everton manager.
Fellaini revealed: “I have known the manager for many years now and I have a lot of respect for his way of working. When I was given the opportunity to work with him again, I jumped at the chance.”
He added: “I had a fantastic time at Everton, but being a Manchester United player is something that every player dreams of and I believe that I can make a real contribution to the team’s efforts to win trophies in the future.”
The former Standard Liege man is set to feature for his country against Scotland at Hampden Park on Friday night, before potentially making his United debut against Crystal Palace on September 14.
