According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Roy Keane is set to splash Ã‚Â£8.5 million on Manchester United striker Louis Saha.
It has also been reported that in the process Keane is ready to make the injury-prone 30 year old, the highest-paid player in SunderlandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s history with a deal worth a staggering Ã‚Â£50,000 a week over three years.
Keane is desperate to add extra firepower to his squad after last seasonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s relegation battle, with main striker Kenwyne Jones injured. And he is confident his pursuit of Saha is set to reach a successful conclusion with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
The FrenchmanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Old Trafford career failed to take off since his Ã‚Â£12.8 million switch over four years ago but Keane feels he will be ready to deliver the goals again like he did at Fulham.
Having already splashed about Ã‚Â£20 million on six summer signings, Keane expects to spend more before the window shuts at the end of the month.
He said: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hopefully there will be two or three players coming on board before the transfer window closes Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking at bringing in another striker.Ã¢â‚¬Â
