Former Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy could’ve been a Manchester United player if things had gone differently, according to the Daily Mail.
The Welshman, who had two spells with the Reds in a nomadic career also spent at the likes of Manchester City, has revealed talks with Sir Alex Ferguson while he was still with Newcastle United.
“Fergie met with my agent in 2002 and said: ‘Can you get him out of Newcastle?'” Bellamy said.
“The honest truth is my knee. I had just had an operation. I knew that if I went to Man United I would have to hit the ground running and with my knee that would have been impossible.
“I did think that maybe I should just go and deal with it then. Just get there… but I would have got caught out at United and that would have been terrible.
“I have to live with myself and sometimes that hasn’t been easy. But I had to be honest with myself so I was.”
