There are a few players who cannot get into the England setup because Mr Erriksson likes his little yes men around him. He drops anyone who shows any sort of spirit ir initiative.

Kevin nolan, to be fair, we had these rumours last summer as well.

Of course Carrick is not worth it, but then again nobody is.

Its quite a simple equation if you put your mind to it:


Carrick

Rangers want to buy him - ok £5m

Carrick

Manchester United want to buy him - ok £20m

Its our name that trebles the price. We either pay or lose out.

You have a player worth £3m tops, and someone offers you £20m - would you sell, who could you buy for that £20m? In Spurs case about 4 players!!

The problem with summer signings in world cup year is managers wait and see. But, if a player has a good world cup, the original team interested suddenly becomes outbid by a more "attractive" club. Not to mention the price going up - and up!

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Tottenham Hotspur have rejected a bid for Michael Carrick, while United have also turned down a bid from Real Madrid for Ruud van Nistelrooy. Ferguson is searching for a new midfielder, as he looks to find a long-term replacement for Roy Keane. Tottenham admitted last month that United had tabled a bid for Carrick, but that they had rejected the bid out of hand. Ferguson is a big admirer of the former West Ham United man and is thought to be weighing up a new move for the classy midfielder. "We are trying to sign another central midfielder," said Ferguson. "We have made a bid for Michael Carrick, but they (Tottenham) turned it down."

Tottenham boss Martin Jol insists he holds no resentment towards Manchester United-bound Michael Carrick. Carrick is set to seal his move to United early next week after both clubs agreed a fee for the England international on Friday. Jol was disappointed to lose Carrick, but bears no grudges against the former West Ham man. "No, not at all," said Jol when he was asked if he felt let down by Carrick's decision to move on.

"Michael Carrick was always a terrific servant to this club and he never moaned even when we told him he had to stay a couple of weeks ago. "The only thing he said was that he wanted to go to Manchester United for the challenge and Man Utd are a terrific club.
