(by way of RED-DEVILS Mailing List ) Subject: Salas/Ccapacity/Giggs Ferguson put block on Salas signing BY JASON NISSÉ AND DAVID MADDOCK ALEX FERGUSON, the Manchester United manager, turned down the chance to sign Marcelo Salas, the Chile striker, despite the club being willing to finance the deal, it emerged yesterday. Martin Edwards, chairman of the club and chief executive of Manchester United plc, said that the board had agreed a fee of around £10 million for Salas and had approved his personal terms, but Ferguson decided at the last minute that he preferred to stick with Andy Cole. "The board would have supported buying Salas," Edwards said yesterday, "but as we were reviewing the situation, Cole was knocking in goals for fun. It was an either-or situation. There was no way we could have played both and it was a management decision to stick with Cole." Edwards added that the decision not to sign Salas was made by Ferguson, who had travelled to South America to watch the striker play, even before his performance at Wembley against England. "The deal was more or less done," Edwards said. Instead, Salas signed for Lazio, the Italian Serie A club, for a fee reported to be £12 million. However, Edwards confirmed yesterday that the fee that Manchester United had agreed was less - around £10 million. Ferguson and Edwards have worked together for more than ten years and the United chairman stood by the manager during the club's lean spell in the early 1990s when Ferguson came close to resigning as United's poor form took them to the bottom of what was then the first division. Until Edwards's comments yesterday it was thought that the manager had been desperate to sign Salas, but that the board of the public company had refused to come up with the funds. The club also revealed yesterday that it has earmarked upwards of £60 million to secure the long-term careers of six of their best young players. Edwards confirmed that Gary and Phil Neville had both signed new, seven-year contracts and that Ryan Giggs last week put pen to paper on a five-year deal. In addition, he said, the United board was at present in negotiations with Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Nicky Butt in an attempt to extend their tenures at the club. Giggs has signed a contract worth nearly £20,000 a week. The Neville brothers will not earn as much, but their deals would still be worth in excess of £5 million, including bonuses and clauses, over the seven-year term of their con-tracts. "We have a commitment to keeping the best young players at this club," Edwards said. "We have signed the Neville brothers and Ryan Giggs signed a new extended deal last Tuesday. We are also in negotiations with Butt, Scholes and Beckham. The three of them signed long-term deals only two years ago, but they have come a long way since then and we would hate to lose them." Edwards also recognised the need at the club to extend a squad undermined by injuries and suggested that the manager would be given funding for any player he chooses. Indeed, United can now be expected to move swiftly into the transfer market as the club has funds sitting in the bank and Edwards is keen for them to be used on buying players, to offset against tax on the balance sheet. Ferguson has targeted several players, including Gabriel Batistuta, the Argentina striker, who plays for Fiorentina in Italy, and Rivaldo, the Brazil international who plays for Barcelona. He has also expressed an interest in Japp Stam, the Holland defender, and Didier Deschamps, the France captain. Edwards has other ambitious plans. He confirmed yesterday that the club would be looking to extend Old Trafford's capacity by a further 10,000, taking it to a limit beyond 65,000, and creating a stadium to rival the one planned in the city for the 2002 Commonwealth Games and even Wembley Stadium. "We are well aware that we are turning people away from our games in numbers and we are pursuing ways of increasing the capacity. At this stage, we can't yet say how, but there are plans in process," Edwards said. The chairman also revealed that a clause in the club's sponsorship deal with Sharp had been exercised, giving the Japanese electronics firm a two-year extension of their contract, which is due to expire in the summer. In addition, Edwards disclosed that Manchester United plc would take a 25 per cent stake in a hotel to be built on land near to Old Trafford. "These are exciting times for the club," Edwards said. "We have many plans to increase revenue and a solid base to build on." Amid all the razzmatazz of big business, United also welcomed back an old face. Mick Brown, once assistant manager to Ron Atkinson, is leaving his position as chief scout at Blackburn Rovers to take up a similar post at Old Trafford. It is on the efforts of such as Brown that a vast empire has been built. A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas. --------------------------------------------------------- JacKiT@indigo.ie --------------------------------------------------------- If tomorrow was today, it would be yesterday.

The Reds raced into a three-goal lead by the break and were good value for the impressive scoreline. Michael Twiss got United off the mark with a solo effort in the 19th minute, then hit a left foot shot for the second. Ben Thornley swapped passes with Alex Notman, before cracking home United's third goal just before the break. Preston threatened to force their way back early in the second half with a series of long range shots which Kevin Pilkington did well to keep out. Then, in the 61st minute Pilkington was finally beaten by an angled drive from Kurt Nogan. United came back with a bang to add a further three goals. Notman rammed home a 30-yard shot in the 68th minute, then made it 5-1. Jordi Cruyff, out of action with an ankle injury since February 21, wrapped up the scoring in the final minute. United Pilkington, Curtis, Higginbotham, Casper, Brown, Twiss (Nevland), Mulryne, Cruyff, McClair, Notman, Thornley.
