Owen Hargreaves believes that Manchester United should move to sign a quality centre-half and a new midfielder in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils will be starting to think about the players they could bring in to bolster their squad this summer after they confirmed the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club’s new manager on a permanent basis last week.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of names in the coming weeks as Solskjaer looks to bring in the players he feels are capable of helping the Red Devils move to the next level.

Solskjaer watched his Red Devils side labour to a 2-1 win over Watford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as they won their first game since his appointment as permanent boss.

Now, former Manchester United midfielder Hargreaves has claimed that the Red Devils need to strengthen in two major positions this summer.

Speaking to BT Sport on Saturday, Hargreaves said: “They need a world class centre-back, that’s for sure.

“And they need somebody alongside [Paul] Pogba like [N’Golo] Kante like they have with France.

“They need someone in that mould to play next to Pogba.”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Tuesday night when they travel to Wolves in the top flight.

The Red Devils will play FC Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals later this month.
