After falling out of favour with most supporters, including myself, as he spent more time in the stands than on the field, Frenchman Louis Saha has signed for Everton. The move is subject to a medical and the fee is undisclosed. Ferguson had previously stated that the striker would be staying at the Red Devils to recover and boost the striking department, but this will not be so.
But it seems the loyal coach has given up of Saha ever returning to full fitness. The striker has scored 42 goals in the 124 appearance that he made in the 4 seasons that he spent at the club. He will be making his move to Everton where he will continue his recovery and play for a lower-reputation club where he may get some goals. Man Utd will not miss the striker much, as he rarely played a part in their drive for success.
But this move makes it inevitable for Ferguson to make a move for a striker before September 1st. The only established strikers for Man Utd are Tevez and Rooney, and an injury to one of them would be devastating as it is yet unknown if Campbell can live up the standards of the Premier League.
It seems that after a move for Berbatov is turning into a roller-coaster, with Ferguson expressing different feelings about the move every single day, the boss may start looking at other options as time is running out. However, all fans believe in the Scot, as he has wowed them before with the signing of Anderson from Porto, when he was never linked in the papers with Man Utd. We at Blogfc believe that Fergie is already in secret talks for a backup option should the Berbatov deal fail to materialise.
