Former Red Devils star believes the team needs new signings.

Manchester United

had a great start to the new season and were leading in the Premier League table for some times, but they failed to keep up the good form and after some draws, they slipped to second to be replaced by longtime rivals,

Manchester City


Man Utd legend,

Paul Scholes

believes the Devils need new signings if they want to dominate in the league.

In an interview with

BT Sport

, the English said:

“I think they’re missing a real, dominant center-back.

“If you look back at history at the teams who win leagues, they have real leaders in their back four.

“I think Maguire possibly could be but I think they need someone with him who can be really dominant in that position, really commanding, can bully a center-forward, can demand from the rest of the squad around him, on and off the pitch as well.

“I don’t think they’re far off at all. ‘I think the attacking play, the midfield play, Paul Pogba looks a brilliant player, the play we hoped we bought. Fred and McTominay are doing well, McTominay especially.

“The attacking players are a real threat. Greenwood is coming of age, he’s still a young player but the more games he plays the more star quality you’ll see, this lad could be a superstar.

“You’ve got Rashford, you’ve got Martial, okay he’s struggling for confidence but that lad’s got real ability.

“You’ve got the experience of Cavani, there’s goals in the team, we’ve not even spoke about Fernandes. There’s real goals in the team. I think a real dominant center-half with authority could tip United to that next level.”
