Man United never made approach for rivals’ new world-class boss

Pep GuardiolaManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern had to take a time out this afternoon to ensure they didn’t smash our bar up, after they were left furious by official confirmation of a massive move.

Pep Guardiola was confirmed as Manchester City’s next boss, taking charge at the summer, and it’s left United fans furious as they had the current Bayern Munich boss as their dream managerial replacement- and they believed they’d be pipped into the race.

However, Sky Sports report that United never made an approach to sign the former Barcelona boss.

Guardiola is calling an end to a three-year stint with Bayern Munich this summer, with another United managerial target Carlo Ancelotti replacing him, and he’s set for a three-year stint in the Premier League with Manchester City.

The fans, and indeed our landlord, can’t quite believe that United never made an approach for a manager of Guardiola’s calibre and are wondering just what on earth the club have in mind.

United fans, how furious are you with the Guardiola news? Let us know in the comments below!
