Manchester United legend Paul Ince feels manager Sir Alex Ferguson needs to buy a midfielder in January.

Ince nominates Tottenham ace Luka Modric or Barcelona's Andres Iniesta as ideal signings.

He told BBC Radio Five Live: "I feel they need that creativity in midfield, losing Paul Scholes was a big loss obviously.

"You're not going to get players like Roy Keane or Bryan Robson, those players aren't around anymore.

"The game has changed since then and you don't get those type of characters, so he (Ferguson) has got to look at another way of controlling the midfield and I think that can come from creativity in someone like Luka Modric or Andres Iniesta, they are the players I would be looking at.

"I'm sure Sir Alex will take stock and he'll be looking at what type of player he will need in January and it won't just be in midfield, I'm sure he's looking at a centre-half with Vidic being out.

"But I'm sure he knows what to do, there's no point me telling him what to do because he's the greatest manager I've ever played under."
