Andre-Pierre Gignac wants to move to Manchester United
Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac has claimed he turned down Everton because he believes his current side are "bigger and more attractive".
Gignac, 26, has been linked with the Premier League in the past, and indeed expressed disappointment when a summer move to Fulham failed to come to fruition, but he has now said he would not want to leave France unless one of the world's leading clubs expressed an interest.
"Everton is a top club in England but for me Marseille is bigger and more attractive," Gignac said. "I want to play one day abroad but at a bigger club like the Manchester Uniteds of this world."
France international Gignac has struggled to live up to expectations since leaving in Toulouse in 2010 but he said: "I do want to make a name for myself at Marseille. I love the club."

Quite so, we have plenty of great strikers at the moment
with young Keane waiting in the wings, midfield is the place to
strengthen, Hazard and the young Swiss from Basel would fit the bill
they are both young and hungry for success, forget Snyder
money means more than prestige to him
Peitro your right in the fact that Hamsik will be 30mill+ but both Hazard and shaqiri your looking at abt 25mill with hazard probably being a bit more. I wouldnt want sneijder as another overpaid, arrogant footballer who wont fit in with the ethics of utd.
I think that we will be signing Rodwell in the summer but Ganso will be available for 15-20 mill.
if we do sign Rodwell i hope we sign one of the others aswell
need some gile which Rodwell does'nt have
Timothy, Mi Amichi
Hamisk is a good player and will get much better, but im afraid
Napoli will not let him go for much less than 35mill
and we all know SAF wont pay that kind of cash right now
and other two are much more gettable
