Man United legend names three players he hopes club will sign

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has named three players he wants the club to sign this summer, according to reports from the Daily Star.

United have spent a massive £250million on new players the past two seasons, but despite this, the club are expected to have another busy time in the transfer market.

The Red Devils are struggling to finish fourth in order to qualify for the Champions League next season, which could deter world class players from joining in the summer.

However, the expected arrival of Jose Mourinho may sway potential targets, and Scholes has put down three players he wants to see in a Man United shirt in the near future.

“I’d like Luka Modric. How old is he now? Might be a bit too old, but he’s a great player,” he told United We Stand.

“I like Raphael Varane. I said realistic and I’m picking Real Madrid players?

“We probably need a centre forward but there’s not too many of them about so I’m gonna say I’d like us to bring Paul Pogba back.”

United may be well behind in the Premier League title race, but Louis van Gaal’s men are still competing in the FA Cup and the Europa League knock-out stages, although it will be a tough task to overturn a 2-0 deficit against Liverpool in the Europa League second leg clash this Thursday.
