UNITED V EVER­TON Saha wants more new faces at Reds

Manchester Evening News - - SPORT - By STUART MATHIESON stuart.mathieson@men-news.co.uk @StuMathiesonMEN

UNITED have scored 15 goals in their open­ing five matches and have se­cured four clean sheets, but ex-Reds striker Louis Saha still be­lieves Jose Mourinho’s squad needs strength­en­ing.

And de­spite that im­pres­sive start at the back and in at­tack, the French­man wants to see a new de­fender and for­ward added.

Saha be­lieves the Reds should plun­der Real Madrid and Borus­sia Dort­mund’s ranks at some stage.

“I would go for Raphael Varane (Real Madrid),” Saha said.

“Varane is a great de­fender and I think he would bring some­thing spe­cial to the de­fence.

“And Pierre-Em­er­ick Aubameyang (Dort­mund), he’s very quick and he’s got the eye for the ball all the time. He’s re­ally im­pressed me in the last few years. And he’s still a player you feel is still step­ping up. He re­ally wants to im­prove. I think he would be a good ad­di­tion.”

Mourinho in­vested £150m in his squad this sum­mer land­ing Romelu Lukaku from Ever­ton, Ne­manja Matic from Chelsea and Ben­fica’s Vic­tor Lin­de­lof.

The Reds were linked with both of Saha’s tar­gets on his wish-list this sum­mer.

Real’s French de­fender even­tu­ally elected to stay at the Bern­abeu and de­spite plenty of in­ter­est in Aubameyang, he re­mained at Dort­mund once the trans­fer win­dow shut.
