    Louis Saha has revealed his concern over ‘very predictable’ Antony and told Harry Kane he is ‘guaranteed’ to win the Premier League if he joins Manchester United.

    United boss Erik ten Hag sanctioned an £82m move for Antony last summer, with the Brazil winger heading to Old Trafford from Ajax.

    Antony excelled in the Eredivisie but has somewhat underwhelmed in the Premier League, scoring four goals in 19 appearances and providing no assists.

    The 22-year-old flattered to deceive in Manchester United’s defeat to Premier League leaders Arsenal on Sunday and was replaced in the second half by defensive midfielder Fred.

    Saha hopes fans show patience with Antony but admits the Brazilian is becoming ‘very predictable’ and needs to ‘diversify’ his game.

    ‘There’s a need for diversity in his game because he’s starting to become very predictable, despite the fact that he’s very skilful,’ Saha told Betfred.

    ‘The skills that he has doesn’t provide a link with the players around him, so he needs to address that. He needs goals and he needs to provide a level of unpredictability, which isn’t easy to do.

    ‘Defenders are becoming aware of his game and he’s exclusively a left-footer, so he needs to diversify his game.

    ‘I can understand the criticism because he’s cost a lot of money and he’s come with a lot of expectation, but we need to remember it’s his first six months at the club and in the Premier League.

    ‘We need to let the kid adapt physically to the league and I’m confident that he can become a player that’s very decisive. It’s about creating more options around him so he can produce moments of magic.’

    Former Manchester United striker Saha also gave his verdict on the fresh rumours linking the Red Devils with a stunning move for England and Tottenham striker Kane.

    Ten Hag reportedly wants to bring Kane to Old Trafford in the summer and Saha says the 29-year-old would propel United to titles.

    ‘If Harry Kane goes to Manchester United, then I can guarantee that he’s going to win the Premier League,’ Saha added.

    ‘You can’t ask for much more as he knows the Premier League and he’s scored so many goals for Tottenham and the national team.

    ‘With Manchester United’s current set-up and their approach to games tactically, then having a forward that can come into that team and score you 25 goals a season will be the last piece of the puzzle.

    ‘You need somebody who can do the big job and the big job is to score 25 to 30 goals.’
