David Gill reveals United didn't want Argentine duo..

United's CEO, David Gill, has set the record straight regarding United, Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano. In an interview with BBC Five Live's Sportsweek, Gill told listeners that United were never interested in Tevez, and that they'd turned down the chance to sign Mascherano, not once, but twice.

Gill said that the club were interested in Mascherano, having watched him over the last 12 months, but Fergie had decided that he wasn't right for United.

Quite why Gill has gone public on this issue is open to speculation, one assumes it's because many fans are unhappy about the lack of incoming transfer activity this summer. Whatever the reason, in making the clubs position clear on the Argentine duo, Fergie and Gill have left themselves wide-open to even more fan fury especially if as expected the Argentine's set the Premiership alight with their skills this coming season. Watch this space.
