Cleverley Stay`s

It appears that Tom Cleverley, unless something happens with regards to a move outside of the transfer window, will be remaining at Old Trafford for the next few months.

Decreed as surplus to requirements, it looked exceedingly like Cleverley would be leaving Old Trafford yesterday, however a dramatic turn of events appeared to wreck those plans.

After haggling over his salary, at Villa Park, it appears that some kind of agreement was reached. But at the 11th hour Cleverley`s head was swayed by interest from Everton.

Having spent time, on loan, at Wigan under the leadership of Roberto Martinez, Cleverley was keen to link up with his former mentor again.

But, it would seem that a deal couldn`t be sealed with arguments going on in relation to whether the deal would be a loan one or a permanent one, arguments that were ended by the closure of the transfer window.

Well I heard he didn't want to join Villa because they wouldn't satisfy his ridiculous wage demands (apparently wanting double what he's earning already) and a deal for Everton fell through due them not being willing to meet the fee we had previously agreed with Villa.

Got to say I'm massively disappointed in the lad, he'd sooner rot in the reserves for a year and potentially jeopordise his footballing career (there's nothing to suggest after a year out of action anyone would want him) because of ridiculous wage demands than earn similar money whilst playing regular football.

Right so we're stuck with him now because he fu(ked Villa about great. He best knuckle down and prove he's worth a place then or at least put himself in the shop window. He'll probably just mope about feeling unloved though watch him swan off on a free now. I've heard various rumours that he was planning that anyway.

To be fair to Cleverley, the lad was desperate to move to Everton, and took his chances, you cant really blame him can you? If you had a choice right now between Everton and Villa who would you choose? Surely Everton, and add that to the fact that Everton gives him a chance to reunite with a manager, who has belief in him and has known to get the best out of him, he took his chances and unfortunately back fired. I think the wage demands were more of a ploy to get Villa out of the picture and force United to deal with Everton, and it worked, however, Everton were never going to pay 8mil for a player with 1yr left on his contract, on the outer at United and has under performed the past 2 yrs.

I don't blame him for wanting to go to Everton and play under Martinez but that move was never on the cards whilst Everton were unwilling to match the asking price Villa met, no matter how absurd the figure was. The fact is at Everton he's career would've been more of the same as it is now, at Villa he would've been a regular first team starter and saw plenty of game time. Now the lad will likely go a year without competitive football because he was too stubborn and set in his mind about a move that wasn't going to happen and arguably wasn't the best for his footballing career.
