Louis Saha urges Man United not to make “huge mistake” in January transfer market

Louis Saha has urged his former club Manchester United to not make a “huge mistake” ahead of the January transfer window.

The Reds have endured a tough start to the season in terms of performances but somehow sit only three points outside of the Premier League’s top four.

Erik ten Hag’s side simply must improve though. Their 2-1 win against Chelsea was a step in the right direction but they need to display further development in the coming months.

One of those months includes the mid-season transfer window and there have been rumours of United being active when January hits to improve their squad.

A recent report from The Guardian stated that there were four positions that those at Old Trafford were looking at, with a no.8 in midfield being one.

This would come as a surprise because of the summer addition of Mason Mount and might suggest that the club are looking to replace him in the team following his early struggles at the club.

Former United forward Louis Saha believes that this move would not make sense and that the ex-Chelsea midfielder can turn his form around when he returns from injury.

“They’d be showing that they’ve made a huge mistake,” Saha told BetFred. “They spent so much time following the player and they paid a lot of money to bring him to Old Trafford.

“He’s inherited the number seven shirt and if they allowed him to go so soon, then that would represent a massive mistake for the club. For those reasons, I really doubt that they will look to replace him in the January window. 

“The player’s going to back himself to be a success at the club and I’m sure Mason’s expecting a big future at Manchester United.

“He may not be playing with full confidence at the moment but that can change in an instant.”

Mount has had an interrupted debut campaign at Old Trafford so far with two different injuries.

He is currently back in training and expected to be available for selection in the coming weeks.
