Louis Saha has tipped Man Utd to sign Harry Kane and win the Premier League title as they “could be special” with the Tottenham star on board.
The Red Devils are enjoying a positive season under Erik ten Hag. It has not all been plain sailing for the Dutchman though as he has managed to overcome early-season difficulties and the Cristiano Ronaldo saga.
But United have grown into the season and they have the chance to end their trophy drought by winning the Carabao Cup. They face Newcastle United in the final later this month.
Man Utd are also well-placed to earn a spot in the Champions League as they will move six points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur if they win their game in hand on Wednesday night against Leeds United.
A Premier League title challenge may not come this season, but United are on track to fight for the title in 2023/24 if they carry on their current trajectory.
United arguably need to sign a top-class striker to push them to the next level and they are expected to target one in the summer. Harry Kane is among the players they are being linked with ahead of his contract expiry in 2024.
Recent reports have suggested that Kane would cost around £100m in the summer if he opts to leave Tottenham. Saha thinks the Englishman “can reach higher levels”.
“My prediction is this: Harry Kane will come to Manchester United and win the Premier League. He will have seen the last few games from United and seen that if he joined that attack they could be special,” Saha told compare.bet.
“He can be recognised as one of the best in the world. He has a modern way of playing, but at the same time, he’s very old school.
“I think he can reach higher levels, especially in terms of personal achievements because the guy can do it, and he’s a terrific guy and a great ambassador for the Premier League. I really wish he will become a Manchester United player.”
Saha has also discussed potential Man Utd target Victor Osimhen. He believes that the Napoli star is a “great player”.
“Osimhen is a great player. Kane would not need any time to adapt if he joined United, whereas Osimhen might, just because the Premier League is harder to adapt to,” Saha added.
“Osimhen was brilliant for Lille, and then he’s made another step forward at Napoli and looks like he will lead them to the title.
“He’s quick, big, keeps the ball in situations when you think he can’t, and he seems to always play well in big games and big situations. I also heard he is a huge supporter of Man United so that helps!”
