Former Manchester United striker has urged Jose Mourinho to consider moves for the likes of Raphael Varane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Special One made valuable business during the summer transfer window as he recruited the likes of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic to his ranks.
The move has already paid rich dividends with the likes of Lukaku and Matic already proving excellent buys for the Mancunian giants. In a report covered by The Sun, Saha – who scored 42 goals for the Red Devils, revealed two players Mourinho should think about signing in the future, he said: “I would go for Raphael Varane. Varane is a great defender and I think he would bring something special to the defence. He’s really impressed me in the last few years.”
Meanwhile, Saha spoke about the hairdryer treatment received from Alex Ferguson following his move from Fulham back in the summer of 2004. The Frenchman had only been in his second game for United, where he scored a brace in 3-0 first-half lead at Everton, but Ferguson still hit out at the striker for missing a couple of clear-cut chances.
He added: “Once he actually killed me in front of everybody. It was my second game at the club. We were playing at a special ground at Goodison Park, we were freeing up so I scored two goals and I was feeling good about my situation. But it was the winning mentality of Alex Ferguson, I missed two sitters and I think Ruud van Nistelrooy missed one as well.”
Under Jose Mourinho, Manchester United appear to have regained their confidence from their olden days, and the club are certainly on the rise following their return to the Champions League via their Europa League triumph last term. The Red Devils have made a brilliant start to their top-flight campaign with five victories from their opening six outings, and this has positioned them just behind Manchester City, who are topping the table on goal difference.
