Manchester United should chase the signings of Callum Hudson-Udoi, Jadon Sancho and Declan Rice in the summer, according to former Arsenal ace Paul Merson.
Merson believes the Red Devils should go for the three England’s most exciting young players if the club is to challenge for the Premier League title. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he will be keen to strengthen his squad ahead of next season while releasing a number of players.
“I don’t think Solskjaer is going to get four or five years to get this right. United just don’t have that kind of patience any more, even for one of their own. If they’re not in the Champions League next season they won’t be able to attract any really big, world-class names either,” said Merson.
“But if they invest in younger talent like Rice, Sancho and Hudson-Odoi they would be getting players who could make an impact straight away but also get better. Imagine what those three would be like in four or five years? Rice could be running the England midfield by then, Hudson-Odoi and Sancho could be two of the best wingers in Europe,” he added.
Striker Romelu Lukaku is expected to lead a significant clear-out according to reports.
