Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma has revealed why he didn’t join Manchester United during the summer transfer window.

The Mali international was widely-tipped to leave Brighton this Summer, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool among the clubs reportedly interested in the 25-year-old.

“I didn’t go this summer, maybe its because it’s not my time to go,” he told Metro.

“When my time will come, it’s my time, but I’m happy in Brighton, I’m enjoying playing football.

“My dream is like every player, I want to play in the Champions League, I want to be champions. I want to compare myself on the top level, not just with other players.”
