Usain Bolt has told Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to sign a new striker and a new defender in the January transfer window.

The Red Devils were inevitably linked with a host of Europe’s top players in the summer but only ended up making three new signings ahead of Mourinho’s second season at the club.

Manchester United brought in defender Victor Lindelof, striker Romelu Lukaku and midfielder Nemanja Matic as Mourinho strengthened his squad all round.

The Red Devils have made a flying start to the new season and have won all three of their opening games to leave them top of the table heading into this weekend’s clash against Stoke at the bet365 Stadium.

However, sprinter Bolt feels that Manchester United are still a few players short.

Bolt told ESPN: “The Champions League is going to be hard, you know what I mean.

“I think we’re missing a few vital (players), I think we need maybe one more striker, maybe a stronger defence and then we will be fine. One striker, one defender.”

Manchester United are looking to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2013 this season.

The Red Devils lifted both the EFL Cup and Europa League trophy in Mourinho’s first season in charge at the club.
