Jamie Redknapp has believes Manchester United will be hoping to sign a new midfielder and two centre-halves in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss to Premier League strugglers Newcastle United at St James’ Park last weekend.

Manchester United’s record signing Paul Pogba has struggled in recent weeks and has been hauled off on two occasions by his manager Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils manager is lacking options in midfield which has resulted in Pogba playing in a pair alongside Nemanja Matic.

However, the Manchester United defence has been exposed in losses to Newcastle and Tottenham Hotspur.

Former Liverpool FC captain Redknapp believes Manchester United need a midfielder and two centre-halves in the summer transfer window.

“In the summer, Jose will be looking to get another midfield player if he plays the three with Pogba and Matic,” Redknapp told The Debate on Sky Sports.

“I am not convinced by the two centre-halves. There is story saying he is looking to buy two centre-halves. You can keep looking for centre-halves but they’re not easy to find.

“They need a midfielder player to give them the right balance.”

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term but won the Europa League and the League Cup in their first season under Mourinho.

Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League table but only two points ahead of Liverpool FC in third spot.
