Saha is hoping Old Trafford chiefs get ready to push the boat out for Haaland.
Speaking to gamblingdeals.com, the 43-year-old Frenchman said: “Haaland is young and ready for a step up, at the moment there are obviously bigger destinations where Champions League football is guaranteed, where trophies are maybe more likely.
“I understand that. But the player is smart enough to understand that United will be back at the top, that’s for sure, and he will fit the bill.
“That’s what United are looking for – someone who can guarantee goals, will definitely play for many, many years and who knows, could even break records.”
