Alan Shearer has revealed that he turned down Manchester United to sign for Blackburn Rovers because the Red Devils needed "three or four weeks" to get the money together. Alan Shearer: “There was interest from Manchester United, but I was told I would have to wait three of four weeks for them to get the money together. “I felt if they really wanted me then they would come and get me immediately. "I had already spoken to Blackburn and had told Kenny Dalglish, Ray Harford, and Jack Walker that I would give them an answer in three or four days – and my answer was yes.”
