Former Manchester United forward Louis Saha thinks the club need to “break the bank” for bringing Kylian Mbappe to Old Trafford in order to strengthen the squad’s attacking side.
United have started a weak season, sitting on the 14th place of the Premier League table. The club is particularly suffering in the attack.
Saha thinks the Red Devils need to sign the PSG frontman to fortunate. However, it wouldn’t be an easy thing.
He told (via Mail Sport): “If you ask me, I would break the bank for Mbappe, but now it’s too late. But, when you look at strikers, it’s a dying breed. Lewandowski is a rare example of someone who is left, and I don’t see many players that can easily fit upfront. There is a need for somebody upfront who is strong enough to hold the ball and to give time and space to the players like Paul Pogba and McTominay to create something in midfield to put passes together. You’re asking a lot from young players because passing the ball around and having nice touches, it just looks too nice and it doesn’t work.”
Marcus Rashford has been the club’s goal-scorer this season, though some think he is not good enough in forwarding’s role.
