Carrick Would Have Joined Arsenal
Man Utd's Michael Carrick has admitted that he only joined Spurs because he proposed move to Arsenal fell through.
Carrick singed for Spurs from West Ham to use the second club of North London as a stepping stone to the big time after the move he wanted to Arsenal fell through when Patrick Vieira decided to stay.
It has often been rumoured that Wenger was close to signing Carrick but this is the first time the player has spoekn about it publically.
Speaking the Manchester United magazine, the player said, 'There was interest from Arsenal before I joined Spurs,'
'Vieira was meant to be leaving but at the time it didn't work out.'
'That is the way football goes. Sometimes it takes you down paths you don't expect.'
So cheers Paddy, no only did we miss out on 12 Million quid that we would have made on your sale to Real Madrid, but we missed the opportunity of a life time to fleece Man Utd out of £18.6million for an overrated player.
That's football eh!
