Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he was offered the chance to sign Joe Cole in the summer when it became clear that the England international was leaving Chelsea.

Cole was linked with a host of teams including Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur before eventually opting to join Liverpool on a four-year deal.

"We were approached by Joe Cole's agent at one point, but we didn't enter into it at all," said Ferguson.

"It was complicated to get involved in that."

Cole is expected to start for Liverpool against United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
