Marange, according to reports in L'Equipe, has turned down a number of clubs across Europe to head for the Premier League.

The 27-year-old has been a part of Bordeaux's senior side since 2004-5 but he has only made 83 league appearances and has also spent loan spells with Nancy and Le Havre.

He recently had a trial with Italian side Livorno but they were not the only club interested in acquiring his services.

Marange is quoted as saying: "I went there (Livorno), I met with their leaders. The project was interesting, it was playing 3-5-2, a formation I like. But after thinking, I chose Crystal Palace.

"I also had some contact with Brugge and Dinamo Moscow. I refused some proposals.

"Just ask any player where he dreams of signing and he will tell you the Premier League. This really is the best championship in the world."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
