The 23-year-old, who has previously been linked to interest from Spanish giants, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, has agreed a contract until June 2025. He will travel to Manchester to join his new teammates after the Netherlands' UEFA Nations League game against Italy on September 7.

Meanwhile United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer commented that he was pleased with what the talented playmaker could bring to his team.
TCL, founded in 1981, is one of the leading consumer electronics companies in China and has expanded its business to over 160 countries and regions worldwide.
