Meulensteen: The 3 signings Man Utd must make

Former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen believes they need to make three significant signings this summer.

Meulensteen believes his old club need to sort out their goalkeeping situation, sign a central defender and also attempt to sign Harry Kane this summer.

“They first need to solve and get clarity about the goalkeeping position because now there's a debate about De Gea and the rumours with Schmeichel, but also Henderson is there," he told talkSPORT.

“So that needs to be solved to make sure that's clear. People are on De Gea's back, but he's still a very good goalkeeper; he's had a few blips this season, he needs to sort that out.

“They also need someone next to Harry Maguire to strengthen that [defence]. 'They're bringing Jadon Sancho in, but more than anything, I would have gone for a more prolific out-and-out striker, somebody like Harry Kane.

“There is so much creativity coming from midfield with [Bruno] Fernandes, [Paul] Pogba, [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial… they can all contribute to goalscoring.

“But [they need] somebody in the middle who's going to score 25-plus goals. That will close the gap for United."
