Transfer Balls: Manchester United And The Bruno Gomes ‘Snub’
TRANSFER Balls: Did Manchester Untied get snubbed by Brazilian wonderkid (it says here) Bruno Gomes? The Daily Mail seems to think so. Hell, it says so:
He’s met Fergie and the players, taken a tour of Old Trafford and posed wearing the shirt… but Brazilian teenager Bruno Gomes is the latest star to snub United move
The silly sod. United are huge. Adam Crafton (as in craft on a story to a headline or photo) adds:
Manchester United have missed out on signing long-term target Bruno Gomes, after the striker declared that he has agreed to join Internacional.
He snubbed United for a Brazilian side?
Gomes has attracted the attention of Real Madrid and Udinese in the past twelve months after netting over 100 goals in the last three years for Desportivo Brasil but his first choice has always been United, who have invested significantly in his development.
So. He wanted to go to United. What about that snub, then?
However, despite extended early interest, United grew increasingly uncertain, with the players’ father understood to have been pushing for a lucrative offer.
Not snubbed at all, then.
