United Won't Buy Larsson

United Won't Buy Larsson

I am an admirer of Henrik Larsson. His movement, his vision and creativity and most importantly, his eye for goal make him an outstanding striker. But that we would sign him on a permanent deal... surely not?

Well, David Gill has not ruled out it but stressed it would be extremely unlikely. The Swedish striker's loan expires on March 12 and an extension could be on the agenda but buying him at the age of 35... I don't think so.

'Henrik played for Barcelona and went back to Helsingborgs for family and other reasons, so I would have thought that (signing him on a permanent deal) is extremely unlikely,' Gill said.

'He is due to go back in the middle of March and we haven't really discussed that yet as we are focusing on the next few weeks and we will see what happens.

'I think it is a bit early. You can never say never and we will go through that nearer the time with Henrik and the club.

'I know for a fact Alex, Carlos and all the players are very impressed with him in terms of what he can do, his attitude and how he has fitted in and we want great players at the club.'

I am impressed, too, but that hardly matters at all!

Gill is very ugly from such a close range. He's not very beautiful anyway...

Now you have seen what he can do and how he fits into the team, surely a permanent offer is on the cards?

He's 35, guys! The problems is not his quality but his age.
