Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke has recently spoken out about his hopes for his former club and urged coach Erik ten Hag to make some crucial signings to help close the gap with Manchester City.
Yorke, who played a pivotal role in United’s historic treble-winning season in 1999, has called for the club to sign a goal scorer, a goalkeeper, and a midfielder to compete at the highest level.
He believes that the team needs to invest in these positions to challenge for the Premier League title and return to their former glory.
In his opinion, the team needs to get rid of three players, including Harry Maguire, who he believes should consider leaving the club if he’s not getting a permanent position.
Yorke also expressed his disappointment with Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial’s performances this season, stating that the team needs to find a way to replace them.
Yorke’s top choice for a new striker is Kylian Mbappe, who he believes is a world-class player of high quality and could help United win back their former glory.
He also suggested Harry Kane as another good fit for the club if they’re trying to challenge for the Premier League title in the next few years.
In terms of midfielders, Yorke suggested either Mason Mount or Declan Rice, both of whom have had impressive seasons with their respective clubs.
As for the goalkeeper position, Yorke did not name any specific players, leaving it up to the management to find the best fit for the team.
Overall, Yorke’s suggestions highlight the need for Manchester United to be aggressive in the transfer market and invest in top-quality players to compete with the likes of Manchester City.
He believes that with the right signings, Manchester United can close the gap and challenge for the Premier League title in the near future.
