Keane signed for Manchester United in nineteen ninety three for the then record transfer fee of three and three quarter million pounds.

United had to first see off a rival bid from Lancashire side Blackburn Rovers to secure the services of the young Irishman.

Oddly for a childhood Celtic fan, Keane resisted the offer to join Celtic legend Kenny Dalglish and signed for a former Rangers' player instead.

After his transfer became finalised, Keane went straight in to the Manchester United first team, playing alongside former England international Paul Ince.

In recent times, Keane has since been described by Sir Alex Ferguson as the best buy he has made at the club. Through out the nineties Keane was the driving force behind United's domination of English football. With out a doubt one of the finest footballers of his generation, Keane was never far from controversy, managing to accumulate elven red cards in his United career.
