Darragh MacAnthony:Not giving anything away

The offer arrived on Thursday morning as MacAnthony was at the airport waiting to board a flight to America for a family break.

The Irish businessman refused to reveal the identity of the player concerned although he did say it was not for highly-rated striker Britt Assombalonga, who scored 33 goals this season as Posh lifted the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at Wembley and reached the League One play-offs.

"Football still chasing me even when I'm trying to get a break. At airport about to board a plane and phone rings. We want such-and-such (not Britt Assombalonga) and I'm like, sorry nope, he's not for sale," said MacAnthony via his Twitter account.

"We will give you £2million today. I said no thanks but appreciate the call!

"Calls like that give me great confidence that our policy as a club is the right one and the only one. I'm now starting to get excited again for refresh/rebuild."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
