Louis Saha believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side could be ‘unstoppable’ next season should they sign Jadon Sancho and Harry Kane this summer.
Solskjaer is hoping to get funds in order to improve the squad this transfer window and there has been alot of rumours in the media that both Sancho and Kane are two player that he is very keen on signing.
Now, Saha has opened up and announced that the club would be unstoppable if they managed to secure the £200 million duo this summer: ‘I think the profile of Sancho is a bit different, where he is not looking for the goal himself,’ Saha told Gamblingdeals.com.
‘The other players that you mentioned do. Sometimes they do it at speed and don’t have the ability to pick the pass. This is what Sancho is doing. He’s been able to diversify his game and really pick the right passes. He has an attacking flow that I really like, because you have a sense that you don’t know what he’s going to do, but you know another player is going to receive the ball. This is really hard to do.
‘If he links up with a proper striker in this United side, they’ll be unstoppable. United have Bruno Fernandes, who can create, but sometimes force the passes, because he’s not quick enough. He has to stop, and then everyone can see that he’s going to pass the ball. Sancho is doing it by dribbling and driving forward and then picking the pass. This is what is missing sometimes. Sometimes, United need this unpredictability and that’s what Sancho is giving you.
‘I think they need Harry Kane, they need an in-form Rashford and Martial, a Bruno Fernandes playing at the top of his game and a still improving Greenwood.
“They need all those players to be better, to be more consistent through the year. They need a few less goalkeeping mistakes and they’ll be fine.
‘There was a five or six game period where they just weren’t themselves earlier in the season and it meant they exited the Champions League at the Group Stages. I don’t know what happened. When you build that momentum, when you’re still in the Champions League it’s a different season.
‘In those five or six games, they lost their chance to remain in contention for the Premier League title. So all of this – consistency, leadership, and at the same time having competition within the club. It’s a feeling of ‘no, if I don’t perform, someone on another weekend is going to do better, so I’m not going to be the starter and they will take my place.’
‘That level of competition and all their players performing is what United need.’
