Coleman to Man Utd rumours fuelled by Roy Keane

Roy Keane offered up some typically colourful views at a fundraiser for Waterford United last night, as he urged Manchester United to do all they can to sign Everton's Irish defender Seamus Coleman next summer.

Keane attended the event alongside Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill and was quick to urge United to re-sign Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, who is a player they let go for nothing in 2012 despite his reported £77m price tag.

"I think United need a centre half and midfielder and Seamus Coleman for right back," stated Keane.

“I also think that United should sign Paul Pogba because they need a presence and physical player in midfield.

“Pogba knows the league, is big and strong and is playing brilliantly for Juventus. People say United can’t get Pogba but they should try.”

Keane was also asked about Alex Ferguson's comments suggesting he was tempted to sign a young Steven Gerrard at a time when Keane was emerging as a star of the United side and he responded with a smile: 

“No, we want to try win something and I'm quicker than him!"
