Owen Hargreaves tells Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the FOUR signings Man Utd must make

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed signings will be made come the close season.

Following the Champions League exit to Barcelona on Tuesday night, the Norwegian told reporters: “We need to create an environment of top, world-class attitude every single day.

“We’ve got a lot of good players to work with but as I have said, we have a rebuilding job.

“It started with coaches, players and of course one or two additions in the summer.”

But Hargreaves believes United need more than one or two new faces.

He wants to see additions in midfield, claiming Fred is not the right man to play in a defensive role.

And Hargreaves also reckons improvement is needed on the wing as well as in the centre-back position.

“I think they need four this summer,” he said on BT Sport.

“I think recruitment is going to be so important for Manchester United.

“[They need a ] director of football, Ole Gunnar is going to need that help.

“For me it showed [against Barcelona] they need a defensive midfield player in that position.

“Fred played there, he’s a ball player.

“In three moments in the game where he could win a challenge or stop someone, he just didn’t do that.

“So I think he’s an eight like [Paul] Pogba, I thought [Scott] McTominay was terrific.

“Centre back, central midfield player is going to be so important, and a right winger.

“I think they’ve got great potential but the recruitment this summer has to be spot on.”
