It’s funny that we wouldn’t let him go on loan to United because you can’t do business with rivals and now we can’t even give him away.
He might have had a decent 3 months there and they might have parted with a few million to take him on. Or he might have at least brought in a bit of interest and got himself out the next window. It was absolutely clear that he wasn’t needed anymore here so I really don’t know why we kept him. It’s not like he was going to go to United and be a team of the season kind of player. Really just cutting our noses off for nothing and now we’re paying for it.
