Fergie stunned by City's Kaká bid

Saturday, January 17, 2009

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he is shocked and surprised by Manchester City’s sensational £243 million swoop for AC Milan superstar Kaká.

Should the transfer go through it will easily eclipse the current transfer record, more than doubling the £46 million Real Madrid paid Juventus for Zinedine Zidane in 2001.

Ferguson is usually the big spender in Manchester, having twice broken the British record in bringing Juan Verón and Rio Ferdinand to Old Trafford.

However, his Manchester neighbours have caused a ripple across the city as City’s offer of £108 million for the Brazilian ace, with the same in wages and £27 million in fees left him staggered.

Fergie said: "I find it hard to get my head round to be honest. It is amazing.

"Football is football. From time to time you get shocks and surprises. This is surprising everyone.

"It would be a statement of intent. That is probably the thinking with Robinho first and Kaká next. It can encourage other players to join.

"I'm not being disrespectful to City because they're not where Liverpool or Chelsea are. We've got to look at the teams around us.

"You can only worry about the ones that are actually taking money out of your pocket or taking a trophy off you. They're the teams you worry about."
