Spurs Tell United To Up The Bid

Spurs Tell United To Up The Bid

Manchester United will have to increase their offer for Michael Carrick to around £15million after Tottenham confirmed they have rejected a bid for the England midfielder.

Carrick, 24, is currently on England duty at the World Cup in Germany and was subject to a £10million bid to solve United's problem midfield area since the departure of Roy Keane.

Spurs spokesman: 'We can confirm we have rejected a bid from Manchester United for Michael Carrick. Michael Carrick is a player we are not looking to sell.'


Spurs would only consider an offer of around £15million for the former West Ham midfielder. Or perhaps a deal involving out-of-favour United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

"Spurs spokesman: 'We can confirm we have rejected a bid from Manchester United for Michael Carrick. Michael Carrick is a player we are not looking to sell." So much for your hopelessly optimistic lie about Spurs say "up the price"

Carrick's got two choices: sign a new four-year deal like the rest of our English internationals or spend two years sweating it out in the stiffs. The Jolmeister does not bend down to player power.

Good player thats come on in leaps and bounds since working with Jol. As for the price...he may not be worth 15M but the mancs may pay it to complete their jigsaw that might help them push fot the title, in which case its a snip.

I think he is very overrated. I am surprised that Man Utd can't find someone better for the same money.
