Manchester United has been asked to ‘break the bank’ and sign Kylian Mbappe to strengthen their flagging attack, says former Old Trafford favourite Louis Saha.
The Red Devils have struggled so far this term, especially in attack and United have seldom looked a threat in front of goal.
Saha thinks that elite strikers are a dying breed so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s should try and recruit PSG’s deadly frontman.
Speaking with Compare.bet, he said: “If you ask me, I would break the bank for Mbappe, but now it’s too late.
“But, when you look at strikers, it’s a dying breed. Lewandowski is a rare example of someone who is left, and I don’t see many players that can easily fit upfront.
“There is a need for somebody upfront who is strong enough to hold the ball and to give time and space to the players like Paul Pogba and McTominay to create something in midfield to put passes together.

“You’re asking a lot from young players because passing the ball around and having nice touches, it just looks too nice and it doesn’t work.”
