Paul Scholes picks out three stars Manchester United need to sign

Scoring his first goal as a professional footballer during Manchester United's Premier League opener against Leicester City, Luke Shaw has been one of the few bright sparks in what has been a disappointing season for United thus far. I didn't think he was a player that we needed, especially for that type of money. "I'm thinking more of a [Kevin] De Bruyne, [Eden] Hazard or David Silva".

Pereira said: "We were winning the game 1-0 at the time of the video".

"That shouldn't make any difference but it does", Scholes told ESPN, adding, "United now feels like Liverpool from years ago, like we're making all the same mistakes as they did".

Scholes has suggested that United didn't actually need or want to add Sanchez to their ranks but simply took him on board to deny Manchester City the opportunity to strengthen their squad.

The reason? Ed Woodward needs to sign a player capable of linking the midfield and the attack, according to the man who used to do exactly that at Old Trafford. I don't think his play outside of the box is good enough.

Scholes also revealed that his fear is that Mourinho's rotation of the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford could see the uber-talented youngsters leave eventually. I'd hate that if it's true, if any player set out to play badly on goal. It becomes easy for the scout who knows that they play 4-3-3 and knows the positions of players and what they're looking to sign.

The former Manchester City striker has expressed his confidence in Salah's ability to keep scoring goals for the Reds pointing out that it doesn't make him worse if he scores less goals than a year ago.
