Manchester United legend and former midfield maestro Paul Scholes has urged United to invest this summer but claims that only ‘two or three’ additions are needed. United are on a 16-game unbeaten streak in all competitions – winning 13 of those – but Scholes has warned his former club not to let up.
Paul Scholes said “There is a big gap to close, there’s no doubt about that, The points difference is ridiculous and the quality of Man City obviously is there for everyone to see. I really don’t think they are a million miles away. I know we spoke about four or five players but I think it’s two or three now. I think you are looking at a centre-forward, a really classy goalscorer and possibly a centre-half to play next to [Harry] Maguire. Look, I think [Victor] Lindelof has done alright but I just think Maguire with his lack of pace at times (can get caught). If he’s got a really dominant centre-half next to him like a Rio Ferdinand or Jaap Stam who bullies centre-forwards I think that would be a big help to the team.”
