Louis Saha thinks PSG superstar Edinson Cavani will be a great help to current Manchester United strikers Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial and the club must move for the striker during the January transfer window.
Ed Woodward has promised the fans that the club will be releasing funds in January and Manchester United assistant coach Mike Phelan has also claimed that club is ready to sign superstars during the upcoming transfer window.
Uruguayan striker Cavani has been one of the most prolific strikers in the world over the past decade, scoring a staggering 195 goals in 287 appearances for PSG and 50 for his country.
Speaking to bwin, Saha said:
Manchester United are the Premier League team that need to strengthen the most in January and they should look at signing Edinson Cavani from PSG.
They need to bring in players to challenge the existing players and create competition; Cavani would push Rashford and Martial and make them even better.
Sir Alex [Ferguson] didn’t like signing players in the January transfer window but times are different now; United need to strengthen sooner rather than later.
I would love to see Cavani join the Premier League; he would be a great signing for Manchester United.
I’d also love to see Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho or Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti; they would both fit right into the Premier League.
Rashford scored a brace against Tottenham and has now scored 12 goals in his last 13 appearances for club and country. Saha added:
Marcus has all the qualities to become one of Man United’s all-time greatest strikers, the only thing that is holding him back is the lack of competition in the squad.
The boy has it all. He’s super-fast, he’s great on the ball, he is unpredictable, plays on instinct like all great strikers and can win you games on his own.
He has the kind of drive that Man United are famous for. He is also already performing on an international level which is incredible.
The lack of competition around him will be a problem for his own development as, ultimately, this is what is going to motivate him and push him to become a better player.
But for someone of his quality, even without the competition, he is good enough to achieve greatness and is now at a stage where he can reach 30 goals a season.
Manchester United face Manchester City next in the Premier League.
