​Man Utd legend McIlroy: We need flair players like Sancho, Grealish

Manchester United legend Sammy McIlroy believes the club needs more flair players at the club.

The club are chasing the likes of Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish this summer and hope to spend big to compete with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

And it appears McIlroy is a fan of United chasing after such prospects.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "At Manchester United you always need flair players and I'm sure Ole knows that, he was in the squad under the great Sir Alex Ferguson, scoring goals for fun.

"Competition for places in squads is a great thing and I think Ole is trying to build that now, United had that under Sir Matt [Busby] and Sir Alex, you need competition and I think Ole is getting that."
