Frenchman Louis Saha is set to join Phil Neville with Everton, subject to the Manchester United striker passing a medical. United have accepted an undisclosed fee for Saha who joined the English champion from Fulham in 2004. Saha, who scored 42 goals in his 124 appearances for United, has been offered a two-year contract with the option of a one-year extension.
Saha, 30-year-old, will be the third signing in a week for Toffees after the captures of Lars Jacobsen and Segundo Castillo, if he passes the medical. The former Fulham and Newcastle man has thanked Sir Alex Ferguson for his advice and support during his time with United.
Now, the number of strikers in United list is decreased and Sir Alex Ferguson is “less optimistic” about signing Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham.
“I’ve no idea what’s going on. It’s very hard to get communication with some people in life.”
This may make defending the Premiership and UEFA Champions League more difficult as only Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez are the only strikers.
However, there is some good news about Manucho. The 25-year-old Angolan is recovering from injury after breaking his metatarsal in his right foot in pre-season training.
