Shearer says Manchester United have taken a huge transfer gamble

Former England international Alan Shearer has said that Manchester United have taken a huge transfer gamble this summer after deciding against pursuing a replacement for Romelu Lukaku. The Belgium international was linked with both Juventus and Inter Milan prior to the English transfer deadline and he ultimately made the move to the latter.

Since then, the Red Devils have gone further to sanction the loan departure of Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan and Shearer believes the club could have a tough season ahead with just Rashford and Martial as the senior striking options at their disposal, he wrote in The Sun: "Gareth Southgate's assessment that Marcus Rashford is not a No.9 is spot on.

In his writing column in The Mirror, Collymore highlighted that Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling had a concern with the consistency in front of goal two years ago but the England international has made terrific progress to become the go-to man for the reigning champions. He added that Martial and Rashford only managed 10 goals apiece last term and they should seek to at least double the tally to aide the Red Devils’ quest for the top four.

There is no change. Everything has already been said with Harry, it’s very simple, we are very relaxed. The clubs that have spoken to Leicester haven’t met any valuations so at this moment in time he is very much a Leicester player and you can see where his concentration is.”


ESPN pundit urges Manchester United to ignore Maguire and sign Alderweireld

Speaking to ESPN, Hislop indicated that United need somehow to make an instant impact at the heart of the defence and Alderweireld remains the perfect option for the role with the experience on his side, he said: “Given the choice between those two at those prices, I go for Alderweireld all day long. Especially for United whose need I think is immediate. Manchester United are trailing everybody in trying to get back into the top four. Age is not that big a barrier or decider in choosing your players. Right now I think Alderweireld is the more sensible option.”
