Man United legend reveals how collapse of Arsenal move left him ‘devastated’

first_imgMichael Carrick has revealed he was on the verge of joining Arsenal – before a sensational display from Cesc Fabregas in the Community Shield caused the deal to collapse.The midfielder was hot property in 2004, with West Ham in the second tier of English football and desperate for a cash windfall. IN DEMAND Carrick was not needed at Arsenal after Fabregas proved his worth targets The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star The pair enjoyed many midfield battles over the years Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer LATEST 2 Chelsea confident of beating Man United and Liverpool to Sancho signing targets RANKED Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti LIVING THE DREAM three-way race moving on 2 Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit? “Within an hour I was sitting in the front room of Arsene Wenger’s house, pinching myself. Could this really be happening? Arsenal! Could I really be on the verge of signing for the Invincibles who’d just gone through the season unbeaten?“We talked for almost an hour about football. Wenger had the Community Shield at the weekend but was spending an hour with me, so surely he had to be interested in signing me? “Let’s get Cardiff out the way, and we’ll see you Monday,” Wenger said as we left.“On the Sunday, I settled down at home in Theydon Bois, Epping, to watch Arsenal, my team to be, in the Community Shield against Manchester United. I saw that a kid, Cesc Fabregas, only 17, started in Vieira’s place. Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January TOP WORK Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade LATEST TRANSFER NEWS Arsenal were one of many clubs to express interest and he even met Arsene Wenger at his north London home.The deal was due to be completed on a Monday, but the Gunners faced Manchester United in the Community Shield on the day before and Fabregas was so impressive he rendered Carrick surplus to requirements.Carrick went to join Tottenham and then United – becoming a legend at Old Trafford – and is currently Jose Mourinho’s assistant.He revealed in an extract from his new autobiography: “On the way home, we got another call. Arsenal again, asking us to meet Arsene. As it happened we were driving past his home in north London, so we arranged to call in on the way. REVEALED Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father “Fabregas played a blinder but I didn’t think too much about the significance. I sat at home on Sunday night waiting for the call to arrange details of the next day. Arsenal! I couldn’t wait.“But I waited, and waited, and that call never came. The next day, I had to go into training at West Ham instead and, on the way, David [Geiss, Carrick’s agent] phoned to say he’d had a call from Dein. David relayed the gist of his message, like, ‘I’m sorry, the manager says we don’t need Michael. Fabregas is coming through like he is. Sorry, the deal’s off’.“Fabregas’s performance changed Wenger’s mind about needing me.“I was totally devastated as I had my heart set on Arsenal and playing with all that talent. My head was gone. Arsenal had swayed me and I didn’t have a clue what I’d do now.”last_img read more
