Paul Scholes urges Man Utd to pursue two transfers after Jadon Sancho failed


Paul Scholes has said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should forget to sign England prodigy Jadon Sancho and instead look for a striker like Harry Kane or Erling Braut Haaland. Solskjaer has reportedly picked winger Sancho, 20, as his No.1 target for the summer transfer window, but Manchester United have refused to pay the asking price of £ 108million despite many months to pursue the gifted player.

United midfielder legend Scholes has argued that the club should by no means have put all their eggs in their basket, given that he believes the Red Devils need a forward more. center than another to operate on a large scale.

They should have focused on getting England captain Kane from Tottenham Hotspur or turned to Sancho’s young Borussia Dortmund team-mate Haaland, according to Scholes, who has only ever played in United Red.

Scholes also expressed frustration with club officials for seemingly failing to give managers more than superficial support in the transfer market.

Asked about Solskjaer by Malaysian store Stadium Astro, he said: “I don’t think he’s the first not to be supported.

“There has been a lot of money spent, but has it been spent on the top choices these managers want? I am not too sure.

” I think [Louis] van Gaal et [Jose] Mourinho particularly complained about it and it’s understandable when they don’t have the players they want.

Scholes suggested United were naive to think their winning streak towards the end of last season was a sign they could relax in the summer window.

He added: “Towards the end of the season it is much easier to win games. It’s a lot easier to run when the pressure isn’t really there.

“Okay, you can talk about the pressure to get into the top four, but that’s not the pressure United want, United want to win leagues.

“You thought at the end of last season he would have had more support in the transfer market to take it to the next level again, but it wasn’t given to him.

“It’s clear that the players he wanted didn’t come.”
