Saha nearing the end

Striker expects Fergie to be in the market for a replacement

Louis Saha accepts that his Manchester United career could come to an end after the Champions League final against Chelsea.

The injury-plagued striker has started only five Premier League games this season and expects Sir Alex Ferguson to be in the market for a replacement in the summer.

Saha arrived at Old Trafford in a £12million move from Fulham in January 2004 but has suffered a series of injury problems.

As United prepare for the Champions League final in Moscow, the France international concedes it may mark his final involvement with the Barclays 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."
