Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has labelled Liverpool "opportunists" over their bid for Gabriel Heinze.

Liverpool are thought to have bid around £7million for United´s Argentina defender - meeting a valuation agreed by letter between player and club - but Ferguson has refused to do business with rival boss Rafael Benitez.

The prospect of legal action remains in the air, but Ferguson told the Daily Mail: "He´s our player, that´s the important thing. He´s not Liverpool´s player, despite them going on like he´s their player. He´s got two years left on his contract, if he completes his contract and then leaves at the end of it, that´s fine by us. We´ll have had five good years out of him."
