Manchester United fullback Brandon Williams has revealed he rejected the chance to join Chelsea.

“I got picked up by [Manchester] United at seven, but I started playing ball at six,” said Williams.

“I wasn’t really into football but my cousin used to take me to a little concrete pitch and we’d kick the ball, chest it, shoot.

“When I was younger I was really quick, always one of the quickest, but it’s down to my cousin how I got to play. How to touch the ball, how to shoot.

“At seven I was playing for a local team called Bury Amateurs. Seven, eight teams wanted me – United, City, Chelsea.

“I’m from Manchester, my Dad is a United fan and so I went with United. And I’ve been there ever since. It makes me so happy I can walk out at Old Trafford and my Dad’s there.”
