I Regret Rejecting Manchester United : Argentina Superstar Juan Roman Riquelme

Argentina superstar Juan Roman Riquelme has confirmed that Manchester United were eager to sign him in 2006 before Villarreal played Arsenal FC in the semi finals of the Champions League. As per reports by Mundo Deportivo, the former FC Barcelona playmaker revealed that he turned down a move from Manchester United, citing it as as his only regret of a career littered with fantastic moments. Riquelme, 37, is now retired, but during his peak, he was widely recognised as one of the most gifted Argentina players of his generation and almost single handedly carried Villarreal to the Champions League final in 2006 only for a late missed penalty. The playmaker was a youth prodigy at Boca Juniors and his consistently excellent performances earned him a move to La Liga giants FC Barcelona. However, things did not quite fall into place for Riquelme at Camp Nou as he endured a very frustrating time in the Catalan capital. The playmaker was managed by Louis van Gaal, the […] Read more »
