Papers: Saha for PSG?

Saha heading for PSG
United are ready to sell Louis Saha to big-spending Paris St Germain to raise money for new arrivals. The injury-jinxed French striker, 29, is wanted by PSG who have signed Chelsea veteran Claude Makelele and is interested in going home if a fee and personal terms can be agreed. United have rejected several bids from clubs who want Saha on loan and PSG would have to buy the hitman and then be able to take on his stunning £4million-ayear salary. Sir Alex Ferguson has grown fed up with Saha's inability to be a significant part of his squad and the money from shifting him could help in his bid for a fit goalscorer. Saha should know his PSG fate shortly.

In other news, Owen Hargreaves has handed United and England a major boost by claiming he is finally over his knee problem. Hargreaves was restricted to just 23 starts last season following his £17million move from Bayern Munich. But he believes a course of injections has rid him of the debilitating tendon problem.

Sir Alex has slammed Sepp Blatter over his slavery claims. FIFA chief Blatter accused the United boss of treating Cristiano Ronaldo like a ‘slave’ after refusing to let him join Real Madrid. But Sir Alex rapped: “I know that slavery was abolished many years ago. It’s an unfortunate statement from someone in such an important position to come out with."
