Man Utd advised to raid Premier League rivals for £36.5m star


Paul Scholes has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to bring Leicester City centre-back, Wesley Fofana, to Manchester United.

Eric Bailly and Harry Maguire have formed a solid partnership for United in the latest weeks, while the Sweden international Victor Lindelof has been struggling with a back injury for the majority of the campaign.

But Scholes believes his old club should not rely on ERic due to his injury record and says Victor has not been ‘totally convincing’ for Solskjaer’s team.

And Scholes claims Wesley, who joined Leicester City from the Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne in a £36.5 million deal last year, could be the answer to Ole’s problems at the heart of United’s defence.

‘In the middle, Ole still has to find Harry Maguire’s best partner. Eric Bailly has pace, but he is rash and picks up too many injuries,’ Paul told ESPN.

‘Victor Lindelof plays the position better and seems to be Ole’s preferred option, but again, he is not totally convincing.

‘If I was Ole and could sign a defender this month, I’d go for Wesley Fofana at Leicester. He’s only 20, but he has been outstanding and he has the potential to be anything he wants to be.’

Elsewhere, Jesse Lingard has held talks with French Ligue 1 club Nice over a potential move, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder’s deal was extended by a further year in December, meaning he won’t be leaving on a free transfer this summer.

Jesse’s future at United still looks bleak however, with the French side now keen to take the player across the channel.

Sheffield United are also keen on the England international, but Lingard would rather stay at Old Trafford till the end of the season than sign for the Blades, as per The Athletic.
