“But, I think when you’re Manchester United, you’re probably looking at the next Wayne Rooney, the next 18-year-old, 19-year-old, 20-year-old. If you’re going to buy somebody that you’re going to pay, make money and that’s going to nail that position down for the next decade.
“But there’s nobody really out there at the moment that they’ve done that with. So they’ve had to bring players in like Casemiro, like Ronaldo, very much the here and now. But they might need to be replaced in the short-term.”
United have been linked with forwards Joao Felix of Atletico Madrid and Cody Gakpo from PSV as potential additions to the forward line, as Ronaldo has been mooted with a potential transfer exit from Old Trafford in January. Luke Shaw at left-back has begun to cement his place in the starting lineup, similarly to Diogo Dalot on the right but there have been rumours that if United can agree to a sale for Wan-Bissaka then they will attempt to bring in another right-back in January.
