Saha Urges Man Utd To Avoid Mount And Pursue Thuram
Louis Saha has advised Manchester United to avoid pursuing Mason Mount this summer and instead focus on signing Marcus Thuram.
While Mount is yet to agree on a new deal with Chelsea, Thuram, who is a France international, is approaching free agency and could be a potential target for the Red Devils.
As they prepare for the upcoming transfer window, United is looking to identify the top talent in the market, particularly in terms of attacking and creative options.
Although Mount has been linked with the club, it seems that the United hierarchy may prioritize signing Thuram over the English midfielder.
In response to reports linking Mason Mount to Manchester United, former United striker Louis Saha has expressed his doubts about the 24-year-old playmaker’s suitability for the club.
Speaking to Lord Ping, Saha stated that while Mount is a talented player who could fit in at any team, he has not had a particularly outstanding year at Chelsea.
Saha, therefore, questions why the midfielder is being linked to United more frequently, despite his excellent form in the previous season.
In Saha’s opinion, Mount is not playing well at the moment, and therefore it would not be the right move for him to join United. Saha believes that the rumors of Mount’s transfer may be coming from agents, and he does not attribute any blame to the media. Ultimately, Saha concludes that signing Mount is not the correct decision for United at this time.
Louis Saha has advised Manchester United to consider signing Marcus Thuram as a shrewd addition to the squad. The French international is currently approaching free agency at the end of his contract with Borussia Monchengladbach.
Speaking on Thuram’s qualities, Saha described the player as a “terrific lad and a terrific player” with lots of energy, confidence, and dedication. The former United striker also noted that Thuram provides guarantees in terms of goals and assists.
“Saha praised Thuram’s tactical awareness and skills and believes he would be a great addition to the United team. Despite being a fellow countryman, Saha was quick to clarify that his endorsement of Thuram is based purely on the player’s abilities, and not on their shared nationality.”
Looking ahead, Marcus Thuram has had an impressive season for Borussia Monchengladbach, scoring 14 goals and providing four assists.
The French international’s performances have caught the attention of several clubs, including Manchester United, who are reportedly identifying summer transfer targets. In comparison, Mason Mount has only managed to score three goals and provide three assists in 31 appearances for Chelsea this season.
