Inaki Williams has opened up on interest from Manchester United in the summer before he signed a new contract to stay at Athletic Bilbao.

The 25-year-old forward was viewed as a potential replacement for Romelu Lukaku at United after he left on deadline day to join Inter Milan in a £73million deal.



Speaking to Spanish outlet Cadena Ser, Williams has confirmed he did speak to United before he signed a new nine-year deal with the Basque giants.



'I had contact from Manchester United but I cannot tell you who it was,' Williams said.

'My number one option has always been to stay at Athletic Club and to retire here.

Williams did not show any signs of unease in committing his future to Athletic Bilbao in one of the longest player contracts seen in European football.

It is almost on a par with the 10-year contract Real Betis handed the Brazilian winger Denilson back in 1998.The deal, which takes Williams through until 2028, includes a £125m release clause.
