Neville and Keane are of the notion United despite having landed two key signings are still missing out on an important position that needs to be filled
Manchester United have managed to land their long term target, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane but according to Roy Keane and Gary Neville the club is still missing out on an important signing.
Speaking on a SkySport show, the both men believe the right back role is an important area Solskjaer needs to pay attention to.
Keane explained: ‘I still have my doubts with United. The couple of signings they’ve made are fantastic, there’s no doubting the quality they’ve got in, but I’m worried definitely about the middle of the park and I’m still not convinced about the right-back.
‘But I think the signings have been good and I still feel United will pull something out of the bag over the next few weeks. I still think they need someone in the middle of the park.

‘They’ve got Fred obviously, Scott McTominay is a good young player who is improving. There’s talk of United changing system and going to a 4-3-3. The middle of the park worries me for United.
‘I think they need to get one in. I think for Ole it’s about shifting people on as well, sometimes you are waiting for a couple of players to go out because United have a lot [of deadwood], Jesse Lingard and players like that in the background. They have to shift them on, they’re not the answer.
‘If you ask me if I think Jesse Lingard is going to get United back challenging for titles, the answer is no. And I’ll say the same for Fred and maybe McTominay.
‘I think McTominay is a good, young player, I’d persevere with him, but the proof is in the pudding. I see Fred every week, I can’t see it with Fred. Ole likes him and he’s the manager, but I can’t see it.
‘I think the right-back is probably not good enough for Man United. And these are good players, but if you’re talking about winning titles they’ve come up short over the last few years.
‘Man United, to me, need someone in midfield – but again that’s huge money and I think they’ll need to shift a few players on.’
Neville in agreement added: ‘I’m alright with the right-back, I wouldn’t be changing that too quickly. I think McTominay’s okay and Fred’s okay, Matic as well, but I share the concern.
‘If they could sign a world-class holding midfield player, yes. But they won’t sign a world-class holding midfield player, they’re not going to spend another £50m or £60m or £70m. They’re done. It’s a problem.’
