Newcastle not giving up on Manchester United youngster

Published

on

An opening bid may have been rejected by the Premier League champions, but Newcastle United aren’t quite ready to give up on their chase for the signature of Manchester United youngster, Ravel Morrison.

According to reports, the Magpies had a bid worth £500,000 rejected earlier in the week but are ready to come back to the Red Devils with an offer somewhere closer to the £1m mark.

The 18 year-old looks assured to be heading for the Old Trafford exit following a chaotic week in which his future at the club has been thrown into complete uncertainty.

A midweek message on social networking site Twitter read: “No contract offer to talk about” despite Sir Alex Ferguson claiming that the player had been offered terms.

The Scot also confirmed in an interview that the wage demands of Morrison were simply too high and the player – who’s contract runs out this summer – is looking for a new club with his agent.

It now seems only a matter of time until a club matches United’s valuation of their star before he officially leaves for pastures new.

The turnaround in attitude has reportedly spiralled from Ferguson’s decision to bring Paul Scholes out of retirement and into the first-team instead of Morrison.

The veteran was substituted on to feature against Manchester City while it seems Morrison has been relegated to the club’s reserve side leading him to feel unwanted at the club.

As an attacking midfielder, one would think that Sir Alex Ferguson would be keen to hang on to any talent in a position that is under so much injury strain at the moment, but after making only two Carling Cup appearances this season, the teenager doesn’t seem to feature in the long-term plans of the English giants.

At such a low cost, numerous clubs will be expected to enquire about Morrison’s availability this month and despite Newcastle’s seemingly exclusive interest in the youth, a bidding war is a high possibility amongst some of the top flight’s lower food chain.
