Bellingham has been linked with a move to rivals Liverpool or Manchester City while Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen.
But former Red Devils striker Saha feels he would be the perfect fit at Old Trafford.
Saha said: “For quite a few years now Manchester United have lacked energy and fitness and been outrun in matches, which is not normal if you’re trying to return to the top.
“So that is something Bellingham would be able to bring in.
“United would be an incredibly tough team to defend against if they had Bellingham and Bruno Fernandes in midfield, with Casemiro sitting behind as cover for the defenders.”
Bellingham was the name on everyone’s lips at the World Cup – with Europe’s top clubs already on red alert.
The 19-year-old was seen as England‘s top performer in Qatar and has become one of the most in-demand players in the world.
Bellingham only signed new long-term contract at Signal Iduna Park back in 2021.
But his red-hot form on the global stage was impossible to ignore.
PSG joined the Prem sides in the £130million race for the midfielder.
The Ligue 1 champions have even gone public with their admiration for the England star.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi praised the young ace.
But he concedes it will be a tough transfer battle as “everybody” wants to sign Bellingham.
Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: “Amazing player, what a player.
“England are lucky to have him, to be honest. He’s one of the best players in the tournament.
“Amazing – his first World Cup. He’s calm and relaxed, confident – amazing.
“Everybody wants him, I’m not going to hide it.
“He’s at his club and we have respect, so if we want to talk to him we’ll talk to the club first.”
