Saha to leave Manchester United for Everton?

Manchester Evening News say that a 2-year deal has been agreed between the two clubs and that the move will happen, subject to a medical.

This comes right after Manchester United released Dong Fangzhou (apparently he didn’t sell enough shirts in China – best of luck D) and with Ferguson saying that he’s less optimistic about a striker coming in before the end of the transfer window because ‘some people just refuse to listen.’ I’m assuming he’s talking about Daniel Levy, but wouldn’t it be interesting if he were after Podolski or Huntelaar or Henry and talking about Klinsi, van Basten or Guardiola instead?

If Saha really is leaving, best of luck to him. He’s a good striker who has had a terrible time with injuries. He was never Ruud class but he could have led the line with Rooney alongside him if needed and that’s all we asked. Pity he was injured so long, and pity that he will be remembered more for the time he spent on the doctor’s table than the goals he scored for United – some of them top-notch match savers.

And if he can stay fit, Everton will have a very good striker on their hands and finally a genuine goalscorer who can help them challenge for that elusive 4th spot (or even get them to 5th again).

Anyone care to confirm/shoot this story down?

Would Henry ever play for Manchester United?
