The France striker admitted over the weekend that he "could not say no" to a move to Old Trafford, but Gartside insists the forward is not for sale and there is no chance of the move taking place anyway - because United chief executive David Gill has told him they have no interest in signing the player.
Gartside told www.bwfc.co.uk: "David Gill has confirmed to me that Manchester United has no interest in Nicolas Anelka. Sammy Lee is looking to build a squad for next season and we absolutely have no interest in selling any of our better players. Nicolas, of course, is one such player."
