It seems Manchester City are paying money for the press around the world to involve Manchester United in any story related to their SMALL CLUB. Today The Mirror football just comes with another joke! After buying, under Man United nose according to their poor fans, Carlos Tevez who they believe will take them to the glory, they put Stephen Ireland name as a potential signing for the Champions of England.
The funniest thing in this story is showing Ireland and Man City as a club who Man United should work hard to get any of those players who are wearing that dirty light blue shirt.
Mirror wrote:“Sir Alex Ferguson hoped that the 23-year-old Irishman could be tempted away from Eastlands because Mark Hughes has an embarrassment of midfield riches with Gareth Barry, Nigel de Jong and Vincent Kompany in his squad.
“But United were told that there was no chance of City selling Ireland – their current player of the year – at any price.
Who need Stephen Ireland?! We got many players in the middle (Scholes, Carrick, Anderson…) and If Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to sign a midfielder, he can splash cash to sign any player like Xavi, Gattuso or whoever!
Now, eveyone is waiting the derby!
