"We liked the lad, but I don't think he knew what was being asked on his behalf. He was given a solid financial package but we were soon being asked to make him the best-paid player at Old Trafford. I don't necessarily blame the player, I don't think he was being told the truth half the time, but this whole business of dealing with agents is getting ridiculous. We are presently looking into Liverpool's role in the affair, too. It's too early to say whether we will be asking the FA to investigate that, but it's a possibility."
