Man U: 'We Didn't Want Argies'

Man U: 'We Didn't Want Argies'

News today from Old Trafford, Manchester United say they 'were never interested' in Carlos Tevez and turned down the opportunity to sign Javier Mascherano.

Man Utd chief executive David Gill: 'We were never interested in Tevez. Mascherano, we were offered him.

'We watched him throughout last season and he played at the World Cup, clearly. We were offered him at the start of the summer transfer window for a significant sum.

'The manager and his staff did not want to pursue that. We were also offered him towards the back end of last week in a loan-type deal for a year, and again we were not interested in that.

'From Manchester United's perspective, Tevez was never on the shopping list. Mascherano we watched closely and very carefully and the experts on that area in our club determined that we did not want to go for him.'

Bull*****. If they bought carrick for 18M, if they were after hargreaves, I think someone is just saving face here. Tevez, maybe not, but mascherano, definately.
