Lescott says PSG captain Marquinhos would transform Man Utd

Former Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott says PSG captain Marquinhos would transform Manchester United into title contenders.

Marquinhos recently impressed in both legs of PSG's Champions League clash with City: despite the French side losing.

And Lescott has urged United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to try and entice him to Old Trafford: "That is the biggest thing, for me. Harry Kane, yes, he would improve them, but I think it's more important to go and get a centre-half.

"I was speaking to Rio [Ferdinand] recently, we were talking about Marquinhos.

"I think if they were to get him, someone of that stature, that would instantly propel them into contenders."
