Unai Emery's response to Man Utd offering Fellaini to Arsenal: "We are not a charity"

Weeks after Marouane Fellaini extended his contract at Man Utd, sources close to the club in collaboration with TGW media have confirmed that Emery was extremely annoyed at the Mancunian club for offering their "broken mop" to Arsenal.

The telephonic conversation between Ed Woodward and Unai Emery turned into a heated argument when Unai Emery refused to pay a single penny for the Belgian and made it clear that Arsenal "is not a charity" and would never pay money to sign a player like Fellaini, an action which he considers to be a philanthropic Corporate Social Responsibility act. Unai made it clear that the Arsenal Foundation was committed to helping people in many other ways but providing funding to one of the richest clubs in the world just so they can offload their baggage is not something the club would ever entertain. 

TGT and TGW media tried to contact Manchester United for a statement, however, the club refused to comment on the story. Ed Woodward has also refused an interview to TGW media, saying that he is unavailable because of a "health emergency". Incidentally, this is the first time in 17 years that Manchester United have denied TGW media access to the club management.
