Paul Scholes reveals the two signings Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs – ‘He’ll be looking'


Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in desperate need of a new striker and a central midfielder.

The Norwegian made three signings in the summer, bringing Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James and Harry Maguire to Old Trafford for a combined fee of £148million.

Despite Solskjaer bringing in solid reinforcements, many United fans were left disappointed with the club’s dealings in the transfer window.

That disappointment stemmed from the club’s failure to bring in replacements for Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera, who joined Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain respectively.

Scholes believes their departures have left gaping holes in the Red Devils’ squad and has urged Solskjaer to fill them as soon as possible.

“Yeah, I think that’s been important for a while,” Scholes said during an appearance on BBC Five Live when asked if he believes United to strengthen in midfield.

“They have some talented midfield players in there now. I think [Scott] McTominay has done really well this season.

“And Pogba we all know on his day can be sensational and probably one of the best in the world in that position, but we just need to see it more often, we need to make sure he wants to stay at the club to get that out of him.

“But I think Ole will be looking, he’ll be trying. ‘I’d be more worried about the centre-forward position, I know we spoke about Mason Greenwood coming through.

“We have Marcus and Martial – are they centre-forwards or are they wingers? We’re not quite sure.

“I always think United, going back to when they were challenging for titles, they had four brilliant centre-forwards and I think that’s something that’s missing at this minute in time.”

Manchester United will be back in action on Sunday afternoon, travelling to the London Stadium to take on West Ham.
