Manchester United defender Guillermo Varela has again spoken of seeing a January move to Genoa collapse

Varela has confirmed Van Gaal stopped him leaving Manchester United.

“Because I saw I wouldn’t play, I would have few chances, I spoke to the manager and he told me that no, I couldn’t go, because I was going to play,” he said.

“Everything happened so quickly that you don’t believe that you’re playing in the most important league in the world.

“I take it calmly, train and look forward.”
