Sky Sports have managed to depress Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that despite interest from both Aston Villa and Everton, Tom Cleverley will NOT be leaving Old Trafford.
This of course means that the midfielder will remain at the club to see out the rest of his contract and then manage to move on a free.
Cleverley will no doubt signing a fairly lucrative contract with a decent signing-on fee in the summer but for now, he will be a Manchester United player.
With Aston Villa pulling out over the wage demands held by the Englishman, Everton were the clear favourites to sign him, yet that has also fallen though in mysterious circumstances.
As one of our punters notes whilst watching the clock countdown and the transfer God that is Jim White get those rumours cleared up, we think that Cleverley will have to spend the season on the fringes of the squad with Louis van Gaal more than ready to outcast him from the squad.
Manchester United fans. What do you think of the failed move? Do you think that Cleverley will get any first team action this season? Let us know your thoughts below.
