Roy Keane confirmed that day that he would play his last match for Nottingham Forest against Ipswich and rumours of a potential move to Manchester United and Blackburn were floating about in British Football. Dalglish was prepared to break the record of £3.3 million he paid for Alan Shearer a year ago.

Alex Ferguson said “Its rubbish that we are only looking at English players. If we believe that the player is right for the club, we will get him, no matter what his nationality is.
