United Fail to Land the Quag

United Fail to Land the Quag

On a day which will be mostly remembered for Thierry Henry`s shock move to Barcelona, many could be excused for forgetting Fabio Quagliarella`s transfer to Udinese, which ended any interest from Manchester United in the striker, if there even was any.

The 23 year old, who played for Sampdoria, was in fact co-owned by Udinese, and after the two clubs failed to reach an agreement about his future by the pre-set date, the matter was settled by a blind auction, which Udinese won with a fee rumoured to be around £5 million, £600,000 more than Sampdoria.

Though Quagliarella was assumed to be interested in a move to Manchester United, the Italian had previously expressed his desire to stay in Serie A, to boost his chances with the Italy national side, and speaking to Radio Radio, Quagliarella expressed his delight at the outcome.

'I am leaving an important club to join another great one. We mustn't forget that the Bianconeri (Udinese) were in the Champions League two years ago. I am flattered by the fact that they invested so much on me.'

Though from what I have seen from Quagliarella I can tell that his signing would be a welcome one, I am left not too bothered by the outcome, as this will hopefully mean we pursue some of our different targets, such as Eidur Gudjohnson of Barcelona, who I feel would be a perfect addition to our already outstanding squad. In addition, we are still not sure whether we were ever actually interested in Quagliarella, and with no official statement, we must assume that this is true.
