Ferguson reveals why Raul is NOT a United player

In an interview prior to the Champions League first leg semi final tie with Germany’s Schalke 04, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson revealed why he failed to make a determined attempt to sign veteran Raul when the 32 year old striker finished his glittering 16 year career with Real Madrid at the end of last season.

How Manchester United can set a new record

If transfer rumours are to be believed – and they can obviously never be, Manchester United may set a record for fielding the oldest team in the history of English, possibly European, football next season. Just imagine the following lineup taking the field at Old Trafford: Van Der Sar, Neville, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Raul, Scholes, Ballack, Giggs, Owen, Berbatov.
