Ramsey: Arsenal wanted me more than United

Arsenal starlet Aaron Ramsey has revealed that he chose to sign for the Gunners instead of Manchester United as Arsene Wenger's side made him feel more wanted.

The 19-year-old Welsh midfielder put pen-to-paper with the Emirates Stadium outfit in 2008 and has steadily enhanced his reputation in North London - making 25 league appearances for the Gunners, scoring three times.

And the former Cardiff City prodigy - who has won 11 caps for his country - confessed that he spoke to both Wenger and Red Devils' supremo Sir Alex Ferguson about a move to either Arsenal or United, but came away far more impressed with the Frenchman

"I was going to take people’s advice but it’s up to me what I do and no one else was going to make that decision for me and I chose Arsenal," he said in the Telegraph.

"I listened to what the two managers had to say to me and I was just more impressed by how much they [Arsenal] knew about me, what they wanted me to do to improve and the path they had for me.

"I just felt more wanted here than Manchester United."
