Former striker Louis Saha believes Man Utd need to make four new signings like Bruno Fernandes if they want to win the Premier League title.
Bruno Fernandes has been a revelation for the Red Devils since he signed in January.
He has 30 goal involvements in 33 appearances and scored two in their recent win over Everton.

That victory helped to silence some of the rumours about the future of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Speaking about the club’s transfer dealings, Saha told Stadium Astro: “The focus is on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But you also have to look at the recruitment. Some new signings like Fred, you can see the quality but he’s not going to make the difference.
“The signing of Fernandes, you need four of them. You need four of them to actually compete and this is what is missing. You need to know the mentality of new players.
“I want players there who want to win the Champions League and win big trophies. This is what is required here.”
United have had an interesting start to the season, to say the least. They beat PSG in the Champions League group stage with an impressive performance.
They also thrashed RB Leipzig in the same competition, mainly thanks to a Marcus Rashford hat trick.
However, their form in the league has been less convincing. They lost to Crystal Palace on the opening day and were thrashed 6-1 by Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.
Even their form in Europe worsened as they lost to Istanbul Basaksehir.
Fernandes has been one of the standout performers throughout all of their games. He’s scored six and assisted five more in 11 games so far.
Saha seems to believe that signing more players of Fernandes’ calibre and quality will help them push on. But that’s easier said than done.
First they must integrate the likes of Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek in a formation which works every game.
