“I’d Really Like To See…” – Louis Saha Urges United To Make Double Signing That Could Cost £160M

Ex-Manchester United striker Louis Saha says his former club should push the boat out to sign Lille’s Leny Yoro and Napoli’s Victor Osimhen.

Erik ten Hag’s side have been linked with the two players and, speaking to the Gambling Zone, Saha remarked that the pair would have a big impact if they made the move to Old Trafford this summer:

“I’d really like to see Leny Yoro at Manchester United, he is a really good prospect. I think United would be a really good fit for him. My dream summer signing would be Victor Osimhen from Napoli, he would really fit the bill at Old Trafford, if I was them I’d be doing everything to try and get him from Napoli, I’d love to see him in a United shirt next season.”


“His attitude, his work rate, he is so good in front of goal. He has a belief and confidence that reminds me of David Trezeguet or Ruud van Nistelrooy, strikers who attract the ball to their feet. Proper strikers are dying [out] but it’s easy to see that Osimhen is one of them.”

United are not first in line for Yoro

Both the Red Devils and Liverpool are believed to have registered their interest in the Lille defender but the teenager is said to have his heart set on a move to Real Madrid.

The La Liga champions haven’t made an official bid for Yoro yet, though, as they believe they can drive down his reported €60m (£51m) asking price due to the fact he is in the final year of his contract.

Osimhen’s release clause is a big stumbling block

United, along with Arsenal and Chelsea, are known to be interested in the striker but Napoli have, so far, remained steadfast in telling potential suitors that the Nigerian won’t leave for less than his €130m (£110m) buyout fee.

It does seem as if United have already given up the pursuit, with the club reportedly in talks to sign Joshua Zirkzee from Bologna instead.
