Former rival tips Man United to make this ‘scary’ signing

Harry Kewell urges Manchester United to sign a prolific goalscorer

According to the Express, former Liverpool star Harry Kewell believes Manchester United should sign a proven goalscorer.

The Red Devils have flourished in the past few months. Central to that has been our newfound mean streak in front of goal.

The trio of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Greenwood has formed a prolific triumvirate that has outscored even Liverpool’s vaunted frontline.

Given that our trio are young and yet to hit their peak, the signs for the future are quite promising. Kewell believes that adding a proven goalscorer to the mix will make us a truly ‘scary’ proposition.

“But I still think United need a, I don’t know, like a Van Nistelrooy, someone that’s just a proven goalscorer.”

United failed to replace Romelu Lukaku, who was offloaded to Inter Milan last summer. Martial has often played up front for us this season. He has done reasonably well and has breached the 20-goal barrier.

United continue to be linked to Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho. Bringing in someone of the Englishman’s ilk to play alongside Martial will give us more tactical options.

Kewell believes such a scenario will leave opposition managers scratching their heads about how to stop us.

“That then can start to scare a lot of other teams.”

Although it appears to be a sound suggestion on paper, translating it onto the pitch may prove difficult.

Our current attack has excellent synergy and understanding that may not be easily applicable when you throw in another player into the mix. The adage of too many cooks spoiling the broth comes to mind here.

Kewell’s suggestions are worth considering if we can achieve the necessary balance in the team. With the club set to fight along multiple fronts, strength in depth becomes a necessity.

If we do qualify for the Champions League, our ability to attract the best will be made that much easier.
