  1. Sorry to piss on your parade boys but I have it on good authority that he has not signed. He has agreed a deal but is also waiting to see if Arsenal have an offer accepted by Fulham. His preference is Arsenal but obviously won’t want to turn down United in the hope Arsenal might agree terms with Fulham.
