Darron Gibson’s £3million move from Manchester United to Sunderland has broken down after Black Cats manager Steve Bruce lost patience with the midfielder’s wage demands, The Daily Mail reported.
Bruce has refused to match the £40,000 a week salary that Gibson has been holding out for and is happy with his summer spending after capturing Blackpool’s David Vaughan last week, becoming his ninth signing in this window.
Gibson had been quoted as saying how keen he was to work with former Manchester United captain Steve Bruce, however he and his agent refused to budge on negotiations of the wage package.
This has left Gibson in a strange position, as he planned to leave Old Trafford to find more first-team football, but Sunderland’s ending of the chase has left him somewhat in limbo as he is not a part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s plans at United next term.
