Ferguson angry over failed deals

:::Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is
thought to be disappointed at potentially missing
out on transfer target Lucas Moura, especially
having failed to land Eden Hazard earlier in the
The 19-year-old Brazilian winger was destined for
Old Trafford until a late $40 million bid from Paris
Saint-Germain will see him move to the French
capital according to ESPN sources.
"The Lucas Moura deal with PSG looks to be done at
$40 million, and Manchester United thought they
had got Hazard but he ended up going to Chelsea,"
said the ESPN source on Wednesday. "Sir Alex is
not happy with losing out on two of his top transfer
targets this summer, not happy at all."
Ferguson has already alleged that the agent fees
for the Hazard deal were worth £6 million, which
clearly prohibited securing the Belgian winger.
It has been suggested that Lucas Moura was told by
former Manchester City man Robinho the area is
boring to live in, something which has angered
The United boss also has his eyes on Robin van
Persie, and might now make an even bigger effort
to lure him from Arsenal, although he would have to
bid close to £25 million to land the Dutchman with
Arsene Wenger determined to keep his striker.
United might find it tough to fork out such a fee for
the injury-prone 29-year-old striker, especially as
his price will quickly depreciate.
So far it's proving to be a frustrating transfer
window for Ferguson, who was hoping to use it as a
platform to challenge Manchester City and Chelsea,
but thus far has only obtained Shinji Kagawa from
Borussia Dortmund and Crewe prodigy Nick Powell.::
