Solskjaer is advised to change United transfer policy for the ‘Next Wayne Rooney’

Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told to change the club’s current transfer policy that will enable them to have a no.9 striker that will be the new Wayne Rooney in the team.

The Red Devils have lacked a top striker like the former forward for the last few years, thereby, reducing their chances of scoring goals and former player Michael Owen believes they must change their policy of signing “stop-gaps” and land a striker that can be the No.9 for years to come.

The Red Devils boss is obviously left frustrated with the number of near-misses at the club as he continues to be without a top-quality number 9.

In the summer, Solskjaer secured the service of former PSG forward Edinson Cavani, with the 33-year-old available on a free transfer and he has impressed in his opening games but the Red Devils deserve something better to win convincingly.

“If you look at the recent past of Manchester United, they have been buying a lot of players that have been coming to the twilight of their career,” Owen told Stadium Astro. “When you look at Cavani, before that Ibrahimovic, before that Van Persie, Henrik Larsson.

“They have gone for players right at the end of their career. The last one they bought early on in their career is Wayne Rooney. At least then you have got a player that is going to last you for 10 years.

“At the moment, Manchester United have struggled to find that young player that is going to take them all the way as a No 9.”

Asked who could replicate Wayne Rooney’s longevity at United, Owen pointed to Borussia Dortmund superstar, Erling Haaland whom United tried to sign in 2019 before he joined German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

Owen feels a deal could be possible in the future but the Red Devils will have to break the bank.

“I think the one player out there that springs to mind, a player that could be in their team for 10 years and stop them having to buy stop-gaps all the time, is Haaland at Dortmund. He is the player on everybody’s lips at the moment.”

Meanwhile, fellow ex-Red Devil Dimitar Berbatov has urged Solskjaer to hand more opportunities to Mason Greenwood.

“Honestly, I would like to see Mason Greenwood develop and become better and better,” Berbatov said. “I am a big admirer of him, he is still very young, he is still learning from his mistakes on and off the pitch.

“I would like to see more chances given to him, to show how good he is.”

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
