ATHLETIC BILBAO striker Inaki Williams has signed an incredible NINE-YEAR contract with the Basque outfit.
The speedster was linked with Manchester United over the summer, although SunSport understands there was little firm interest.
Now, Bilbao have decided to tie down their star goalscorer and raise his release clause from £81million to £125m.
Williams, 25, said: "Hopefully great things can come because what I want to make this club bigger, if possible.
"This, as you can see, is my house, and all I want, I have it here.
"The club has always bet on me, it has given me everything, I feel it is my home."
Amazingly his deal – which runs until 2028 is not the longest dished out by a Spanish club.
Brazilian winger Denilson signed up for a DECADE at Real Betis in 1998.
United managed OK without Williams yesterday as Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Daniel James scored in a 4-0 rout of Chelsea.
Old Trafford chief Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed a new Manchester United dawn after watching a youth-packed side demolish the Blues.
Solskjaer said: “We have found a way we want to play that we believe in.
“This is just the start — the more we get to play with each other and show we’re a team, the more we’ll improve.
“The boys have been excellent since July 1 and have been fit enough to implement what we wanted to do – the team spirit has been fantastic.
“But it’s still a work in progress, we know we’re not anywhere near the finished article and there is loads of improvement to be made.
“We have to play better than this to get results against loads of teams.”
