Paul Scholes Names The Two Signings Man United Must Make To Challenge Liverpool

Paul Scholes Names The Two Signings Man United Must Make To Challenge Liverpool

Paul Scholes has revealed the two signings Manchester United need to make to challenge Liverpool next season - a 'goalscorer' and a centre-back partner for Harry Maguire.

United are currently fifth in the Premier League but are quite a distance from Liverpool at the top of the table.

However, Red Devils legend Scholes told BBC that he thinks United are only a few signings away from challenging at the top.

"There is a big gap to close, there's no doubt about that," he began. "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 goal scorer and possibly a centre-half to play next to Maguire."

Club captain Maguire has been partnered by Victor Lindelof for most of this season, but former midfielder Scholes thinks a 'dominant' defender is still required.

"Look, I think 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."

Scholes also admitted that he thinks United will qualify for next season's Champions League.

"I think they will (qualify)," he continued.

"They are going to have to win every game to do it but you look at the fixtures they are very winnable.

"If Ole can keep this team fit, the first 11 that played the other night, I don't see a reason why not.

"I don't think the squad is massively strong where he can leave players out and afford to give people a rest for the FA Cup or the Europa League as it was.

"He needs to play his best team from now until the end of the season I think they'll have a great chance."
