Argentine legend sensationally reveals offer to sign for Man United

Juan Roman Riquelme says that his only career regret was refusing to join Manchester United.

Argentinian legend Riquelme rejected the chance to join United back in 2006 after Sir Alex Ferguson was wowed by his performances for Villarreal.

Now, after retiring, he has admitted to regretting that decision.

Speaking to Mundo Deportivo, he said: “The only thing I regret in my career was a decision that I took, when at the hotel in England before the semi-final with Arsenal, when Manchester United came to buy me and I said no.

“I stayed at Villarreal, because I was very comfortable with my team-mates.”
