Former Manchester United winger Andrei Kanchelskis has named three players he thinks the club should sign in the summer, including Gareth Bale.
The Red Devils have been on an unbelievable run of form under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that has seen them move into fourth place in the Premier League and reach the quarter-finals of both the FA Cup and Champions League.
Their latest victory on Wednesday night against PSG was possibly their most impressive under Solskjaer and there have been renewed calls to give him the job on a permanent basis.
Despite that, Kanchelskis thinks that they need to bring in players in the summer to improve their position with Bale, who is currently unsettled at Real Madrid, one of his preferred targets.
“There’s no denying Real Madrid are underperforming at the moment and it doesn’t matter who you are, no player would enjoy that,” Kanchelskis told Bwin.
“I do believe Bale would reignite his career if he came to Man Utd. I believe Bale needs to be loved and that’s exactly what the Utd fans and Solskjaer would do for him.
“If Bale were to leave Real Madrid, Man Utd have a great advantage in the fact that they are one of the only clubs that could afford his wages.
“With a few players contracts expiring in the summer, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was something the board were thinking about and why they may not be renewing some.”
United have also been linked with Dortmund and England winger Jadon Sancho and Kanchelskis thinks he would fit in well.
“He’s young and English which is the perfect mould for United,” Kanchelskis added. “It’s crazy to think that a player who was let go for so cheap can suddenly come back to the Premier League for £90 million, but I guess United did something similar with Pogba from Juventus.
“Sancho has really shown what he is capable of at Dortmund and it’s been great to see a teenager go abroad and become a first team regular for a potential title winning team.
“It makes you wonder how Man City didn’t see the talent or weren’t willing to give him the chance.
“Manchester United would love to have the chance of taking a City player and making him a great at Old Trafford.”
The Red Devils are rumoured to be monitoring the progress of Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka with the club linked with a £40million summer bid.
Kanchelskis continued: “Wan-Bissaka would be an excellent signing.”
