Manchester City recently discovered that money cannot buy you everything when Kaka opted not to sign on at the City of Manchester Stadium.
It now seems that close neighbors and the home of evil will have to do without Carlos Tevez as he has made it clear that he will not play for United again.
City's problem was the lack of Champions League football, but it appears that United's problem was that they have a lack of respect for players.
"I feel that they have lacked respect towards me," Tevez said. "It's not about whether they pay £5million more or £5million less, but I feel I have been badly treated."
"There are ways in which the club is managed that I don't understand," Tevez went on to say ab out the club. "I don't have faith in a lot of things that happen here. I've been here for two years and the directors have never come to speak to me. Not once have I had a meeting with them."
"Therefore, it's best that I leave the club so as not to clash with Alex Ferguson and the directors," Tevez continued.
"I've asked Kia [Joorabchian] not to speak to me about offers during the next 10 days. I want to concentrate only on the final matches that we have to play. Afterwards, I've got a month to take a decision and choose where to go."
It appears that United have completely misread the mood in the Tevez camp and it appears that the suggestion that United would "Sort the Tevez situation out in June" is simply not good enough.
The Tevez situation seems to prove what most non-United fans have suspected for years, that United is arrogant beyond belief.
It seems that United thinks that players should be grateful for the opportunity to grace their club.
Well Carlos Tevez doesn't agree.
Where will he he play next season?
I would put a fair amount of cash on him pulling on the Sky Blue shirt of City and for that all City fans can thank United.
