FC Barcelona have revealed their desperate financial situation and could not pay the players salaries in June.
They have begged Man Utd to buy their superstar, Lionel Messi.
Sir Alex considered the option but snuffed Barcelona by quoting "Messi is not good enough for Man Utd we have Obertan!"
Man United fans couldn't believe Sir Alex's reaction and rushed off to buy Manchester City season tickets (at least they are buying somebody!)
Barcelona may now be forced into selling their super-hero to their main rivals Real Madrid, but desperately wish to avoid this scenario, albeit, a swap for World Cup flop (that rhymes by the way) Ronaldo could be an option, but they desperately need the cash.
Jose Mourinho is following the situation and even offered to pay Messi's unpaid wages if he agreed to come to Real.
If this should happen the Iberian Peninsula could become a civil war zone with Basques and Catalans joining forces with Argentina, recapturing Messi, installing Maradona as their El Presidente and entering the following World Cup as firm favourites to beat the Germans (dream on!).
