Manchester United great Paul Scholes believes Manchester United should prioritise strengthening their striking department over signing Jadon Sancho.
The Borussia Dortmund winger is firmly established as United’s prime target ahead of the 2020/21 season but negotiations with the Bundesliga side are proving to be difficult due to their hefty asking price.
As a result, he believes that a better option in the transfer market would be Tottenham striker Harry Kane, as he feels a new centre-forward is required.
“I don’t think it’s a major priority (signing a right-sided forward). Don’t get me wrong, he is a top-quality footballer. He would improve Liverpool, Man City and Barcelona,” he told BT Sport.
“He is a goalscorer and would make lots of goals. But we have three wide-stroke-centre-forwards who are very similar to Sancho. They might not be as good as him but they could be.
“If that was Harry Kane we were talking about, I think we would be more desperate. We need a centre forward but Ole doesn’t seem like he wants that type of player anymore.”
