Scholes Picks Out 3 Signings Red Devils Need

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has picked out three areas that he believes the Red Devils need to address in the transfer market, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad considered to be alarmingly short on creativity.

A team which has been struggling to find a spark this season, especially on the road, returned to winning ways on Thursday with a narrow 1-0 Europa League win over Partizan Belgrade.

Former United midfielder Scholes believes the problems facing Solskjaer in an ongoing bid to return former glories to Old Trafford are fairly obvious, with it clear that any funds made available in upcoming windows need to be invested in the final third of the field.

He told BT Sport: “It’s a team that really lacks creativity.

“We’re lacking on a real No. 10 I think, a player that can play passes through and is capable of scoring goals as well.

“Also maybe a patrolling midfield player who can set all the play up as well, take the ball off the back four and link it through to the forward.

“And I also think they’re desperate for a No. 9, I don’t think they’re good enough in the forward areas.

“But it’s the start of Ole’s rebuild, he didn’t think [Romelu] Lukaku was good enough for that, he didn’t see a place for [Alexis] Sanchez so he’s got rid of them." Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
