Old Trafford starlet reveals he turned down offers from Anfield and Emirates.
Manchester United defender Phil Jones revealed he joined the club this summer because they gave him the personal touch and made him feel wanted.
The 19-year-old was one of the most sought after players during the transfer window with Arsenal and Liverpool also in the hunt for him.
The England U21 international rejected the other offers because manager Sir Alex Ferguson spoke to him personally and convinced him where his future lies.
“It was brilliant when I heard of United’s interest, an incredible feeling,” he told the Daily Telegraph.
“The whole experience – speaking to the manager on the phone, meeting him in person, going through the whole process of signing – was fantastic.
“Lots of clubs showed an interest in me, but United just felt right: the whole club, the set-up.
“It wasn’t the fact that it was United, it was that I walked in here and met people, the staff and physios etc, and it just felt right.
“At Blackburn, when I knew there was interest from bigger clubs, I said to myself that if it (a move) happens then it has to feel right, and this felt right.
“I didn’t want to come from playing every week at Blackburn to becoming a bit-part player at United, but I knew I probably had to do that at the start.
“I wanted to come to United because I felt that the club was right for me, so if I had to wait, I was prepared for it.”
He has been hugely impressive so far, with United legend Sir Bobby Charlton revealing Jones was reminiscent of the great Duncan Edwards.
“It’s brilliant for me to even be considered as being a player who could become as good as Duncan Edwards was,” Jones added.
“It is flattering and, for young lads like myself and my team-mates to be compared to great young players of the past, it is an amazing feeling.
“People have told me about Duncan, facts and figures about him, but I obviously know what he means to this club.
“When you come into training in the morning, knowing that people are talking about you in the same breath as players of the Busby era, it is fantastic, but I can’t let it affect me.
“I have to play my own game and continue to do what I have been doing so far.”
