Fulham forward Louis Saha says he is determined to join Manchester United despite his club’s refusal to let him leave.

The Londoners have rejected several offers from the English champions for the services of their in-form striker and Saha, who admitted publicly last week that he was upset at Fulham’s tough stance, says he ‘will do everything to leave’. The former Newcastle forward told L’Equipe:

“I won’t do anything, at first, considering my team-mates that I love. But I will do everything to leave. If I have to fight, I will. I know coach (Chris) Coleman didn’t appreciated my words, he told me.

“Also, since Wednesday we’re not speaking to each other anymore. Even Coleman will not refuse such an offer. Against Middlesbrough, I had one of my worst matches of my season. That is probably not by chance.”

Saha’s father and agent Vincent added that he feels Fulham should show gratitude for his son’s service to the club and allow him to move to Old Trafford.

“This affair is far from over. Louis is still determined not to miss out on a chance of a lifetime. I want to see Mohamed Al Fayed to have meetings in the next few days. Louis has always acted in a correct and honourable manner and expects more consideration in return.

“Louis did not cost Fulham a lot of money, they should know this business has a big effect on him. I have talked with Louis today and he is determined to join United. We will not yield.”
