Badiashile has confirmed that a bid was made by United at the time, but a transfer did not materialise and he is glad to have since played regularly for Ligue 1 title challengers Monaco.
Asked if he had any regrets about missing out on a move to Old Trafford, the 19-year-old told RMC Sport: "No, not at all.
"It was the right choice [to stay at Monaco]. First off is I have not enjoyed good seasons since I have been at Monaco.
"We played to stay up and so now I am really experiencing the top of the table and I think that continuing with the club that formed me was the right decision and this is being proved by the season that we are having."
Badiashile, also touted as a target for Real Madrid in the past, has started 25 of Monaco's 26 league matches in 2020-21. body check tags ::
