LA Galaxy ace Donovan indicates he may have turned down Man Utd

Landon Donovan has subtly suggested that he might have turned down an offer to join Manchester United this summer.

The 31-year old USA star, who signed a multi-year deal with LA Galaxy this week, had been considering a move away from MLS when a number of clubs in Europe were circling.

Donovan enjoyed two loan spells under David Moyes at Everton in recent years and it was believed that the Scottish tactician, now in charge of Manchester United, wanted him at Old Trafford.

When quizzed on the topic, Donovan did not specifically name United but did hint that he held talks with Moyes about a possible reunion.

"I'm not going to comment on specific conversations I may have had with David in the past, but…we'll say I had talks with some very high profile teams in England, how's that?," he disclosed.
