Fulham rejected Batistuta
Gabriel Batistuta - the main man for Argentina
Fulham rejected the chance to sign Argentina striker Gabriel Batistuta, the Premiership club has confirmed.

The 33-year-old was offered to the west London side at the start of the year - according to Fulham spokesman Chester Stern.

He told the Daily Express newspaper: "In the early part of the year one of our directors was approached through a third party representing Batistuta.

"We were asked if we would be interested in signing him.

"(Manager) Jean Tigana was asked and we immediately responded with a `thanks, but no thanks'.

"Jean didn't give his reason, but his policy is to maximise profits on young players rather than buy older ones who might be very expensive and not have any resale value after their contract."
