To be wanted by them was like gaining accepted to moving into the Playboy mansion, but those days seen rather far gone now as the club can no longer just announce their interest in a player and expect to pick him up. Sure, they enjoyed some positive recruitment over the summer, but they didn’t get everyone they wanted and below are just some of the names that turned them down since Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement.
