Keane linked to Forlan - a bad omen for Sunderland?

Reports continue to suggest that United legend Roy Keane might be trying to sign Diego Forlan for Sunderland. United fans have very mixed memories of Diego, sometimes he was great, but he also had the propensity to be absolutely awful.

He scored some very important goals for United and we shouldn't forget that, but he also missed some absolute sitters. I recall him coming on as a second half substitute against Newcastle United on the day we beat them 6-2 at St James Park, Diego was presented with two near open goals but neither effort hit the target - it was easier to score than miss the goal, but then I also recall him scoring the winner against Chelsea in the dying moments of the game and who will forget him scoring against Liverpool?

Whether or not Keane could get him scoring for the Black Cats remains to be seen, first he's got to sign the player, but I for one remain unconviced about Diego, I'm sure that I'm not the only Red who has that view. However, perhaps the best comment that sums him up is this 'he's neither as good or as bad as he's been made out to be'.

Interesting times ahead for Keane and Sunderland.
