Martin Keown: This is the signing Man United must make this summer
Martin Keown tells Jose Mourinho to bring in a new centre-forward for Manchester United in the summer
Martin Keown has warned Manchester United that they must go out and buy a new centre-forward in the summer transfer window if they want to compete for the title next season.
The Red Devils have been struggling to find consistent form in the Premier League in recent weeks and slumped to another disappointing draw on Wednesday night when they were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Everton at Old Trafford.
That result dealt a fresh blow to Manchester United’s hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League via a top four finish.
There is bound to be plenty of speculation about which players Manchester United could try and sign in the summer transfer window in the coming weeks and months.
A perceived over-reliance on veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to prompt talk of Jose Mourinho bringing in a new forward.
And former Arsenal defender Keown feels that the Red Devils are in dire need of bringing in a new centre forward in the summer.
Speaking on BT Sport on Tuesday night, Keown said: “Manchester United need to go out and buy a centre-forward.
“I know Marcus Rashford is the future but at times he showed anxiety in his play.
“It’s a very difficult situation for a young player to come into and thrive in this Manchester United team at the moment.”
