Erling Haaland is Manchester United’s best bet if they are to sign a striker in the summer, according to Paul Scholes.
He told the Webby & O’Neill show: “[United] need a No9.
“I think the forwards they have are very good, but are any of them really a No9, or are they wide players? You just can’t make sense out of it really.
“When Cavani’s played, he’s looked alright but he’s had a few injuries. He’s at that age. It was always going to happen, he was always going to be bit-part.
“They need someone who is more permanent who’s out there and available. I know Haaland is talked about a lot, he’s going to cost a lot of money.
“Harry Kane at Spurs, there’s rumours that he might want to leave there.
“I think any one of them, you take any one of them, but I think if I had to choose, then Haaland would definitely be the one.
“Purely for his age, great ability as well, the timing of his career, he’s played under Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] before…
“I think it would make sense for everyone to do it, but there’s going to be other clubs in for him which is going to be difficult.”
