Yeah, I remember that, too. As I recall, Fergie wanted to keep him, just didn't want to give him the wages. Funny that, they think he is a £6 million player, get in a tizzy over losing him, and get in a tizzy over a player joining us that their supporters are now saying isn't all that, but they didn't want to pay him a commensurate wage. Mmmmmmm?By all accounts they were very bothered to lose him. They offered him a contract which he turned down wanting greater forst team oportunities. The press at the time said Fergie was furious, which I believe came from a former player if memory serves. He wouldn't be making a fuss now if he wasn't bothered then.
