United Can't Sign Adu Yet

Teenage sensation Freddy Adu has finished his trial at Manchester United and has been sent back to Washington D.C. without any kind of a deal confirmed.

Some tabloids say he simply proved to be not enough for Manchester United but Sir Alex Ferguson's comments on this matter seems to deny these claims.

'Freddy has done all right,' said Ferguson. 'He is a talented boy.

'He'll go back to the US and we'll keep a check on him. When he is 18, we will have to assess what we can do next.'

'What we did was to bring him here to give him an idea of what United was like so he could see the place and see how comfortable he was with it.'

'He is a very confident and good, young boy but there is nothing we can do about him.'

So, basically, it's possible we want to sign him but we can't do it as he's too young. Of course, hearing that he'd done all right does not mean he will earn a contract for himself when he turns 18 as Fergie did not state Adu could be world class and we could not miss out on him. So it's possible he was disappointed with the lads' performance but did not want to reveal it - just think about it: a 17-year-old comes to train with United then the boss publicly declares he's not good enough. What could that do with a young man's confidence?

However, it's possible we'll come back for him next summer if what he'd shown has convinced Fergie that he would be the long-term replacement of Ryan Giggs.
