Man Utd legend Robson: Ferguson needs to buy new striker

Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson says Sir Alex Ferguson needs to continue strengthening his squad this summer. Ferguson has already secured the services of defender Chris Smalling from Fulham and striker Javier Hernandez from Chivas and recently reiterated that he is more than happy with the strength and depth within his squad. Robson, however, feels some additional options in attack would be hugely beneficial to United.

"Personally, I'd like to see the boss sign another couple of players," Robson told ManUtd.com. "It would be great if we could bring in a goalscoring midfielder. You look at the likes of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard who contribute so many goals from midfield for their clubs and I think that's an area we need to improve on.

"Also, having lost Ronaldo and Tevez last year I think one more striker would be a good addition as well, although Hernandez certainly looked promising at the World Cup. He didn't get a lot of time on the pitch, but he showed good movement, nice touches and clearly has an eye for goal."
