Is he telling the truth or is it pure fiction?

That loveable Welsh rogue, Craig Bellamy, has come out with a remarkable claim.

Bellamy, currently on loan at the Championship side, Cardiff City, reckons that his move to the Welsh side pushed through because Manchester United were showing a keen desire to lure him away from City to Old Trafford.

Or as Craig puts it,

“Someone else came in from above Tottenham which would have caused quite a few stirs.”

“If I`d said I wanted to go there for one minute, my life in Manchester would have been really tough. It would`ve been a miracle had it come off.”

“I tried to work out whether to hold out for that one or go home.”

“But because of the other club`s interest, City panicked and pushed through the Cardiff thing through.”


Interestingly, Manchester united have denied any interest in Craig Bellamy and also, if he was thinking about a move to Old Trafford then does this pour a little cold water on his outrageous claim that he always had a dream to play for Cardiff, his boyhood team?

Mind you, any confrontations between Sir Alex Ferguson and Bellamy would have been real box office material!
