Manchester United have been told to improve their defence if they’re to stand any chance of launching a title challenge this season.
And Ian Wright says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should rival Manchester City for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
Wright believes they’re looking in the wrong areas and should be targeting Koulibaly instead.
‘‘We saw with the one signing in Fernandes that it all changed for Manchester United,’ Wright told Premier League Productions.
;‘But for me in the defensive point of view they’re still very weak.
‘’We’re hearing City might get Koulibaly but they’ve [United] got to be going in there trying to do that, they’ve got to be trying to do that deal.
‘’Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a fanststic defender but Lindelof and Maguire and the left side Luke Shaw – those three are there for the taking.
‘‘If you’re to challenge those teams [Liverpool & Manchester City] they’ve got to be a lot stronger. it’s not strong enough for me at the moment.’’
The Red Devils’ priority target is Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho but Wright believes United have enough options in attack and he’s urged Solskjaer to follow Liverpool’s lead in how they sold Philippe Coutinho in favour of signing Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk.
