The move to Old Trafford was blocked by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
“Yes, at the end of the transfer window they [United] came in,” Debuchy told Canal +.”They contacted my agents.
“I was disappointed, obviously. If I had the chance to go to Manchester United it would have been magnificent.
“Unfortunately it wasn’t the case. I discussed it with the coach too, who said that obviously he couldn’t help out a rival.”
Debuchy is currently on loan at French side Bordeaux until the end of the season.
