Fergie Should Bite Off Keano's Hand...

Reports suggest that Sunderland are ready to table a Ł10m bid for Louis Saha.

While I never hid that I admire Saha's talents, I also often stressed that his maddening proneness to injuries makes him a liability. It seems certain that Fergie's going to get rid of him this summer.

As I said, he's a good player and even with his medical record some clubs are bound to be interested. But the latest news, about Sunderland's alleged offer, is too good to be true.

Niall Quinn has been throwing money at Keane ever since he's appointed him but Ł10m for a soon-to-be 30-year-old striker who cost us Ł12,75 four and a half years and dozens of injuries ago?

The Telegraph reports that Fergie wants to recoup the entire amount which I highly doubt. We are not renown for selling our players at obscenely high prices so why start it now when their original offer is almost miraculously high?

Of course the entire article is written in the assumption that the reports of that Ł10m bid are true - but if they are then the offer must be accepted for we won't get nearly as much money for Saha from any other club.

If he's actually ready to offer 10m, then you should take it in a sec.
Fan of Blues
I can't see the sense in it, it's a lot to be paying for a player who is consistently injured. Loan move perhaps?
toffeetower
Thpught he was off to PSG
worbo
Once he's off i'm happy

for 10m bye bye Saha :| like you, i think he is a GREAT player and gives us a different option but he is just way too injury prone

swap in january for kenwyne jones

Well if you could get him off the treatment table (possibly dressed in cotton wool to prevent injury on the way to the pitch), he'd be an asset. But frankly, he's your version of Arjen Robben - great when fit but, frustratingly, he rarely is.

TLOZ, agreed.

Let's not jump the gun here fella's. With Berbatov deal looking dead, can we belive Fergie will get in another striker? If not, we MUST keep Saha, regardless of his injury history. Remember, Manucho hasnt got a work permit yet (will he get one?) fraizer campbell is far too wasteful in fron of goal and seems scared to use his left foot - and other than that Rooney and Tevez are our only striker...again. Im amazed how quickly our fans can turn against a player.

Aren't there other alternatives to Berbatov? I expect you to sign a striker this summer.
Fan of Blues
Cruz, Villa, Eto'o, Benzema(doubt it), Huntelaar, Jones...all good :|

Gary Neville has just come back from a lengthy spell on the sick and I don't hear anyone saying 'I hope he goes soon'. If you need a quick refresher on Saha's talents just check him out on youtube - Saha is one of the best strikers out there and I would have him over Berbatov every time. Give him one more chance.
skylab
Sky are you a United fan? :| guessing not because Saha is no doubt a quality player but he has always let us down, just when we need him he is injured...he comes back from a injury we are all happy then the next game he gets injured during the warm up, WE ARE SICK OF IT!! he is unreliable, we got away with the lack of strikers last season but this season we cant leave it to chance, we need someone we can rely on to be fit when we need some fresh legs or different type of striker then rooney and tevez
