My time at United may be over, admits Saha

Striker Louis Saha admits his career at Manchester United could almost be at end.

The 29-year-old arrived at Old Trafford from Fulham in a £12m move in January 2004 but his time with the Red Devils has been beset by injury.

As United prepare for the Champions League final against Chelsea next week, the France international concedes it may mark his final involvement with the Premier League champions.

Saha said: “The future isn’t in my hands, but I’ll try to make it happen for me.

“I know this could be my last game, and I would understand if the manager went for another striker. It would be painful if he did because I love the club so much.

“I can’t speak about my future too much really now, though. It’s about the club. The main thing is to win the Champions League and maybe that will change things.”
