I wish it worked out different but I have zero respect for the way things were done.
There has been no suggestion he is trying to hold the club to ransom, there has been talk from Fergie (who lets face it, isn't always 100% honest) that his agent was being difficult alright. Also reports that he was told to sign the contract he had been offered or he would never play for the club again.
I doubt either side are squeaky clean, they rarely are in contract discussions. The mentality of the lad has never been in question though. I still can't make sense of his move to Juve if it happens, he has a better chance of playing at United I think. Or at least he has as much chance of going on loan from Juve (extremely likely) as he does going on loan from United if he were to ask I'm sure
If you need evidence of United not being squeaky clean all you have to do is look at the way they poached him in the first place a few years ago
