Ex-Man Utd prodigy Ravel Morrison was a target for A-League clubs

Former Manchester United talent Ravel Morrison was discussed as an option by A-League clubs after the midfielder spoke to Sydney FC striker Adam Le Fondre about his future.

Morrison, 26, who was once described by legendary Red Devils coach Sir Alex Ferguson as the best 14-year-old he had ever seen, joined Premier League new boys Sheffield United last month in a bid to reignite a career that has failed to take off.

But it could have been Australia that Morrison chose to rejuvenate himself, with Fox Sports journalist Daniel Garb revealing the former wonderkid was talked about by A-League clubs after the Le Fondre chat.
