Savage to Sheff United? I Think Not!

Savage to Sheff United? I Think Not!

New Sheffield United Boss Bryan Robson is reportedly interested in taking Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage to the club, but Savage is having none of it!

Suggestion is that Robson will offer his one time Manchester United team-mate (Robson would have been with Man United when Savage was part of the Man United FA Youth Cup Winning side in the early 1990's) £40,000 a week to turn his back on Rovers and spearhead Sheffield United's charge from the Championship back to the Premiership.

However, a source close to Sav (I always wonder who these so-called sources actually are?!?!) feels he has unfinished business here and isn't interested in a move, this mystery source said:

"Robbie is happy where he is. He feels Rovers stood by him when he broke his leg last season.

"He feels he still has unfinished business, and has not achieved all that he wants at Blackburn. So he will be staying at Rovers
"

Never gonna happen is it! Besides Sav only signed a contract extension (to take him through until 2009) at Christmas so Robson will have to turn his attentions elsewhere as Sparky will NOT be willing to sell!!! Not even to his old Manure team-mate Robbo.

Blade1889 - I can assure you that IF you ever had Sav playing for you (not that you will!) your opinion on him would change DRAMATICALLY! It always does when Sav is playing for your club.
