Man Utd need another big scorer like Cavani or Falcao - van Nistelrooy

Ruud van Nistelrooy believes Manchester United needs to bring in one more big-name goalscorer.

The Red Devils currently have Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie up front but former Old Trafford ace van Nistelrooy feels David Moyes should go after someone like Paris Saint-Germain ace Edinson Cavani or Monaco star Radamel Falcao.

"Cavani? I think he is a very good player. In my view, he can be a good signing, but he has also recently signed for a big team. He will be expensive," the Dutchman told Le10Sport.

"But there is also Falcao, he may be an option for a pure number 9, to score goals.

"I think that van Persie and Rooney, David Moyes needs more than just one big scorer in his team.

"I think if you sign a good finisher, it can give you 20, 30 goals in the season and it helps to be in the top of the Premier League."
