Where Will Keane Go Next?

Where Will Keane Go Next?

Well, it was bound to happen. Every man and his dog have been linked to former Reds captain Roy Keane.

Cascarino said yesterday on an Irish radio show that Villa was the most obvious destination due to the player being close to O'Leary. But would Keane really relish a relegation battle? And with O'Leary seemingly under pressure with a woeful start to the season, would it be wise for the Old Trafford legend to hop over to the Midlands club? I doubt it!

Celtic have been linked to the midfielder even before he departed yesterday and as Keane has been a Celtic fan since he was a boy, the links make sense, but that would all depend on the plans of the Celtic boss Gordon Strachan.

Also linked have been Bolton Wanderers, and with Big Sam a past master at taking 'big names' to his club, the link is no surprise. However Allardyce has already admitted that the wage demands will no doubt be too high for them.

Wigan, flying high in the Premiership at the moment following their promotion last season have also been linked. They certainly have some money, but....... Just can't see it. Club chairman and JJB Sports boss Dave Whelan said on Radio Five Live: 'If Paul Jewell came to me and said to me can we go and sign Roy Keane, I’ll back him. They all say he will go to Celtic, but let’s wait and see.'

And even more doubtful are the overtures from Portsmouth. The club have issued a statement saying: 'Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie is making enquiries about Keane’s availability. Milan Mandaric (owner) believes he is the kind of character the club would welcome.

After their magnificent start to life in the Premiership, Wigan chairman Dave Whelan believes the Latics could be an attractive proposition for the Irishman.

I can't see that Keane would be interested in moving to another Premiership club, it would be a massive step down for him and lets face it, many a former Red have struggled to maintain their status and form after leaving Old Trafford. One thing is for sure, Keane will do what Keane wants. He is a single minded and strong character, his next move may well surprise us all!

The odds are quoted in The Sun online as:

Who will Roy Keane play his next competitive club match for?
Celtic 1/2
Blackburn 12/1
Birmingham 20/1
Aston Villa 25/1
West Brom 33/1
Real Madrid 40/1
Man City 40/1
Man Utd 50/1
Cork City 50/1
Chelsea 50/1
Arsenal 80/1
Liverpool 100/1
Cobh Ramblers100/1
Nottm Forest 100/1
Barcelona 100/1
AC Milan 100/1
Sunderland 100/1
