Real deal for Roy?

Roy Keane may be about to sensationally reunite with his former Manchester United teammate David Beckham at Real Madrid, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.

The publication claims that the 34-year-old midfielder had a medical in Britain on Saturday.

Real were thought to be in pole position to sign Keane, although the sacking of coach Wanderley Luxemburgo had cast some doubt over the move.

Marca said the path was now clear for Keane to join Real following a decision by the club's financial division to sanction the funds for wages.

Real had appeared Keane's most likely destination, despite Keane's initial concern about commuting from his Cheshire home.

I think this is great! Everyone said that no matter where Roy went, the fact he was leaving Manchester United was a step down. However going to Real Madrid can't be seen as a step down, can it?

If you ask me, Keane is just the man required to give Real Madrid the kick up the arse they so desperately need.

'Keano' chants at the Bernabeu? Stranger things have happened!
