Manchester United legend Roy Keane: “I wish I’d moved to Bayern Munich”

Seeing Keane in Bayern red would’ve been a surreal sight.

Bayern v Man U

Most of you know who Roy Keane is. The former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder was known for being temperamental, most notably injuring Alf-Inge Haaland (father of Manchester City striker Erling) in 2001. Keane recently opened up on a near move he made during his career. The destination? Bayern Munich!

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has expressed his regret at not joining Bayern when they were interested in him: “Yeah, [I was] very close, yeah. Wish I bloody had! I wish I’d gone abroad. A part of me is jealous when I see other lads now going abroad because it’s a great experience for a family and maybe, but again, I was really happy at United and content”.

Imagine a midfield pairing of Keane and Stefan Effenberg with Oliver Kahn in net. Probably the most peaceful core of players there is.

Is Roy still Keane for a move now? Bayern are short of players in midfield.
