Paul Ince believes simply bringing in Jadon Sancho won’t be enough to close the gap to the top.
Manchester United finished second last season but way behind their rivals and English champions, Manchester City.
While signing Sancho is a huge boost, The Red Devils are still far from being a complete squad. Ole Solskjaer need reinforcements in several areas including figuring out Paul Pogba’s contract situation.
United confirmed Sancho’s move from Dortmund last week. A €90m agreement with add-ons finally saw Solskjaer land his top attacking target.
Ince told Paddy Power: “United still need three or four more quality signings to be title contenders.
“It’s great that Edinson Cavani’s signed for another year, but he won’t play every game at his age, even if he wants to – they need a centre forward.
“They need another centre back and a world-class central midfielder, and they must be top players.
“United’s recruitment in recent years has been poor. They spent £40million on Donny van de Beek, who’s hardly played, it doesn’t make sense.
“It’s about time United got their player recruitment right. They want attacking football and signing Sancho is the excitement going forward that they’ve been longing for.”
