Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has advised the club’s hierarchy to spend the money required to strengthen their attack this summer transfer window, insisting that Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho would have made a huge difference against Sevilla following their exit from the Europa League on Sunday night.
Man United were eliminated from the Europa League semi-final at the hands of Sevilla after goals from Suso and Luuk de Jong.
Bruno Fernandes did score for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as the match ended 2-1 in favour of the La Liga side.
But Scholes wants Man United board to release the funds necessary to sign world-class forwards, such as Sancho, who had drawn interest from the Red Devils in the past
“I don’t think they [Man United] played badly tonight, I think they played well against a really good Sevilla team,” Scholes told BT Sport.
“But that 15-20 minutes after half-time with all those chances, you have got to score them.
“We are talking about quality, about spending money on centre-forwards and wide players, you are talking hundreds of millions these days to get these players, but these are the players that win you trophies, win you medals.
“I know all of this Sancho thing is going on, but they need to start spending money. If they want to win trophies, you have got to start spending the money.
“Okay, they created the chances tonight, but if Sancho is in that team tonight, I think United are scoring,” he added.
