Saha signs for United

Manchester United have officially unveiled Louis Saha as their latest signing, in a £12.825 million move from Fulham.

The French striker has signed for The Red Devils until the end of the 2008/2009 season.

Fulham receive £11.5 million of the total expenditure and have already spent some of that revenue on Columbus Crew striker Brian McBride, as Chris Coleman prepares for life without his 15-goal top scorer.

"Louis is a young and exciting talent and has made incredible progress," stated Sir Alex Ferguson.

"We have got a young and gifted centre forward. His performances against Manchester United have showed us that.

"To have finally secured this deal is fantastic and is a great boost to the club."

Saha, who will wear the number nine shirt, had earlier admitted he was disappointed with the circumstances surrounding his exit.

"It's a dream come true," he beamed. "To leave a great atmosphere like Fulham has been difficult, but I am glad to be joining one of the best clubs in the world."
