Veron Turns Down United's Millions -- According to El Clarin, Kevin Payne came to Buenos Aires and offered Juan Sebastian Veron, a package worth at least $20 million, including $10 million in salary. Veron said "Today my answer is no." Veron added, though, that his answer might change: "But, in a few months, in December? I don't know." So, United can look to fill the designated player slot with someone else...or hope to slide through with what they've got now, and hope to bring in Veron for next year. Right now, with management surely aiming at the MLS Cup final in RFK this October, they must take a long look around. The question is who else is out there?
