Craig Bellamy has hinted that Manchester United were interested in signing him from Manchester City before he joined Cardiff on loan in August.[LNB] Bellamy attracted plenty of interest from Premier League clubs, but admits it would have needed a "miracle" to make the move from Eastlands to Old Trafford.[LNB]"Garry Cook (City's chief executive) said to me it was the most phone calls he'd had on a player for a while," Bellamy said.[LNB]"He said 'You should take that as a big compliment' and I said 'Yeah, they all seem to want me apart from the club I'm actually at.'[LNB]"Tottenham wasn't going to get done and someone else came in above them as well which would have caused a few stirs.[LNB]"If I would have said I wanted to go there for one minute my life at Man City....staying there would have really tough for the next couple of weeks."[LNB]Asked if he was referring to Manchester United, Bellamy added on BBC Radio Five Live: "I ain't gonna say anything but it would have been a tough couple of weeks.[LNB]"It would have been a miracle if it had come off. I sat down with my agent and we were realistic, do we hold out for it or do I go on?[LNB]"And I think because of the other club being interested I think Man City panicked as well and said 'you can go to Cardiff' and they pushed it through as quickly as possible."
