Long serving, talented, but never quite that good defender Wes Brown could find himself looking for a new club after his agents rejected an offer of a new deal.
Sir Alex “The Mighty Ogre” Ferguson said,
‘He has not agreed anything, which is entirely up to Wes,’ Ferguson told reporters. ‘We feel we have made him a good offer.
‘We have had several meetings with his agent. Some agents are difficult. They have rejected our last offer so that’s the end of it. We won’t be going back.’
Ferguson said the 28-year-old, who has been at Old Trafford since leaving school, may leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.
‘It’s a possibility. It would be a disappointment,’ said the United manager.
Brown is, like John O’Shea and Darren Fletcher, one of a handful of United squad players who would start at most Premier League clubs but are versatile squad players at any club with title-winning aspirations. If Brown does leave there would be no shortage of suitors with the likes of Tottenham, Newcastle and Manchester City sure to be lining up for a relatively young but vastly experienced centre half already fully adapted to the Premier League.
