Louis Saha has urged Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal to bring in reinforcements in defence and midfield in the January transfer window.

United find themselves 10th in the Premier League table after a stuttering start to the season under the Dutchman.

And former Red Devils striker Saha feels that United are in need of at least one additional defender and midfielder during the mid-season window.

“I hope they finish in top four but I can’t be sure,” Saha said, before describing the January transfer window as “very important” for his former club.

“You could say the issues are at the back but it’s about balance, finding the right midfielder to keep the ball and a defender to be strong at a certain point of the game.

“What [the manager] does in this window this winter will be very important for Manchester United.”
