Lee Sharpe believes the Red Devils need a ‘goal-scoring machine’ to provide competition and inspiration for the players like Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford and thinks Erling Haaland is the best option.

Lee Sharpe

believes the Red Devils, who have forced their way back into title contention this season, need a ‘goal-scoring machine.’

Their best options are

Erling Haaland


Harry Kane

who have been linked with the Red Devils.

Last year, Manchester United were trying to bring Haaland in but he ended up at Borussia Dortmund.

The same goes for Kane as United once were ready to pay £200 million for him.

When Sharpe was asked whether Haaland would be the best option for the Red Devils, he answered:

“I think Haaland is unbelievable.

“I played with his dad at Leeds and he couldn’t score a goal if he tried and his son has come out as this prolific goalscoring machine – he’s absolutely unbelievable.

“I’d love to see him at Old Trafford but whoever signs him, if someone does at the end of this season, watch out.

“If Liverpool or Man City get him, I don’t think there is anyone to stop them going and winning the league.

“I think Martial on his day can be absolutely fantastic and then he can switch off and not look interested and stroll around the place.

“[Edinson] Cavani, years of experience and a great goalscorer, but I’m not sure he can do it week in, week out. He will be used as more of an impact sub. Rashford will chop and change from the middle to the wide position.

“I think the next thing for United is Haaland or someone like Harry Kane – a goalscoring machine because they do create so many chances.

“If you are a goalscorer, a natural goalscorer, you are going to get chances and you are going to score bagfuls at that club.”

Anthony Martial

scored the opener in the game against Aston Villa and Bruno Fernandes once again scored the match-winner and helped his side to win.
