Sir Alex Ferguson admits he considered signing Everton legend Tim Cahill for Manchester United.

Ferguson made the revelation at the launch of his new autobiography.

"Tim Cahill was on the radar and he had a lot of really good qualities. He had a terrific career for Everton, scored a lot of goals for them, Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes you bring some in that you thought were a benefit to the club, sometimes with players you lose," he said.

Cahill is now playing for New York Red Bulls in MLS.
