Manchester United Sell Neville to Everton Thursday, August 04, 2005

The BBC Sport website is reporting that Everton have returned some of the Rooney fee to Old Trafford in the shape of a 4.3 million Euro deal to buy our homegrown kid, Phil Neville.

Personally, I’m sad to see him go, he was always rather under-rated by many of the Old Trafford “faithful”, but I have always thought that his versatility made him an ideal squad member.

Whether filling in at the back or up one of the flanks he was never less than reliable and, on those rare chances he got to play in central midfield, proved a steely stand-in for Keano or whoever. However, footballers like to play and with only 12 starts last season – and now an even bigger crowd of midfielders at Old Trafford – he must have been keen to avoid the Nicky Butt experience…
