Manchester United are confident Gabriel Heinze will fail in any appeal against the Premier League´s decision not to force the Red Devils to sell him to Liverpool.

A three-man panel on Tuesday ruled the letter signed by chief executive David Gill indicating United would be willing to sell at a price of £6.8million did not constitute official approval for Heinze to leave.

In their summing up, the panel also suggested the wording of the letter made it clear United were willing to do business only with an overseas club - reinforcing the positions of Gill and manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who have been unequivocal in rejecting Heinze´s request to become the first player in more than 40 years to leave Old Trafford for Anfield.
