Legend Scholes opens up and tells Manchester United to sign striker with £300m rated duo linked
Paul Scholes says signing a new striker should be Manchester United’s top priority, with Erling Haaland and Harry Kane the two names most linked with a move to the club.
Kane, who is eager to start winning trophies, has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford and there has been some suggestions that he may now be open to the idea of leaving his boyhood club in the summer, while Haaland is one of the most sought after players in the game right now.
It is no secret that Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer has one of the most exciting attacks in the Premier League, but it is also no secret that they are lacking a forward that is able to bring another 30 goals to the attack.
And heading into the coming transfer window, Scholes has told the club that they need to sign a new striker: “First and foremost, they need a number nine,” the former United midfielder said on Webby & O’Neill YouTube channel .
“I think the forwards they have are very good, but are any of them really a number nine, are they wide players? You just can’t make sense out of it, really.
“When [Edinson] Cavani’s played, he’s looked alright, but he’s picked up a few injuries. He’s at that age, it was always going to happen, he was always going to be bit-part.
“They need someone who is more permanent. I know Haaland is talked about a lot, he’s going to cost a lot of money. Harry Kane at Spurs, there are rumours that he might want to leave there.
