Mick McCarthy says it will take a £50million offer to persuade him to sell Kevin Doyle after insisting Arsenal have not bid for his striker.[LNB] Wolves manager McCarthy has stressed all along that he wants to keep club record signing Doyle who moved from Reading for £6.5million 12 months ago.[LNB]And McCarthy is adamant that it will take an outrageous type of bid for him to offload Doyle.[LNB]McCarthy said: "When Kevin said recently that he was pledging his future to Wolves it suddenly caused a stir.[LNB]"The reality is that he was saying it to get everybody off his back.[LNB]"Leave him alone and let him play his football.[LNB]"Look, if Manchester United come in and offer the club £50million and give him 200 grand a week, I can't keep him.[LNB]"Then I'll have to say 'thanks, Kevin, all the best, see you'.[LNB]"But no, there's not been any approach from Arsenal - I can't be any straighter.[LNB]"Doyle will be a player for us unless someone comes in offering the earth, moon and stars for him."
