After two highly successful years in Wigan he became the first summer signing of Manchester United in 2009. He signed a four year contract at Old Trafford, and was bought for about 16 Million Pound. With Man. Utd he won the Premier League, the FA Cup, the League Cup and even the Europe League! In the summer of 2019 he decided it was time for him to move back home. He is going to play in Quito for LDU Quito.
