Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes says Red Devils should consider an attack on Leicester for Wesley Fofana, while he confessed to still have a “worry” about Old Gunnar Solskjaer’s back four.

Players at Old Trafford have searched for a winning formula in 2020-21, with long-awaited consistency letting them be #1 in the Premier League table.

A determined defender has been helping the common cause, with the likes of Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka slotting in front of the goalkeeper, David de Gea.

’s second center-half spot has been filled by Victor Lindelof, but Eric Bailly has found form and shape recently to prepare for regular match time.

While

Red Devils

had remarkable performance lately,

Scholes

believes they can still be improved.

“As a back-four, I worry about how good they really are,”

Scholes

announced before

United

’s match against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

“At full-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is just about defending, which is fine for a game at Liverpool, but I'm not sure what Luke Shaw brings to the team.

“In the middle, Ole still has to find Harry Maguire's best partner. Eric Bailly has pace, but he is rash and picks up too many injuries. Victor Lindelof plays the position better and seems to be Ole's preferred option, but again, he is not totally convincing.

“If I was Ole and could sign a defender this month, I'd go for Wesley Fofana at Leicester. He's only 20, but he has been outstanding and he has the potential to be anything he wants to be.

“United have done OK at the back this season, but they have been exposed when playing against the big teams, and that's another problem they need to solve.”

United

will go to Merseyside this weekend.

The Red Devils

figure continued:

“It feels strange to say it, but I actually do think United can win the league because it's been such a weird season. But it's all about winning the big games now.

“They haven't done that yet. People can say they won at Leicester on the final day of last season to qualify for the Champions League, but that wasn't a big game like going to City, Liverpool or Chelsea and winning when it matters.

“United have lost four successive semi-finals and were knocked out the Champions League with a really bad defeat against RB Leipzig. That failure to win big games has to change if they are to win anything, but there's no better place to start than at Anfield.”
