Albiston insists Man Utd do not need Modric or Lucas

Former Manchester United fullback Arthur Albiston insists they do not need Lucas Moura or Luka Modric. Sao Paulo star Lucas has chosen PSG ahead of United, while Tottenham playmaker Modric is set to join Real Madrid.

"Unfortunately for us Darren Fletcher who played a lot of football last season is unavailable," Albiston told talkSPORT. "He's got to get his health back before he begins thinking about football.

"Anderson has been out injured and he is hopefully coming back as well. Tom Cleverley is another player, he has not played a lot of football for United but he is a high quality player.

"We're hoping that he and Anderson can have a decent run injury free and [Sir Alex Ferguson] might not need to sign that midfield player.

"You could argue that Paul Scholes was United's best player in the second half of the season when he came in from the cold and he is going to have to nurture and help Cleverley and Anderson get through one more season."
