Cascarino: Man Utd have to replace van Persie, Falcao and Di Maria

Former Aston Villa and Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino feels Manchester United must replace departing players such as Angel Di Maria, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao.

Di Maria is the latest player who looks set to leave Old Trafford as a move to French champions Paris Saint-Germain nears completion.

The Red Devils have already lost strikers van Persie and Falcao to Fenerbahce and Chelsea respectively and the exit of another attacking player will only make life more difficult for Louis van Gaal according to Cascarino.

"Their midfield has been bolstered (by the signings of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin)," Cascarino said on the Sky Sports' Transfer Centre.

"But if you think they will have lost Di Maria, Falcao and van Persie, that's a huge loss to Man United.

"They must find replacements. If they lose Wayne Rooney (to injury), they've got a problem."
