Manchester United need a striker like Lewandowski

Sir Alex Ferguson's former assistant at Old Trafford believes that the Red Devils are still lacking a natural No.9

Manchester United are missing a striker like Robert Lewandowski.

United missing a striker like Lewandowski' - Solskjaer still needs to fill key position.

Gunnar Solskjaer took the bold decision to stick with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford as his two main forwards after Romelu Lukaku was sold to Inter last summer.

Solskjaer has been tipped to target Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho in the summer transfer window to complete a squad rebuild, but Meulensteen doesn't think the Red Devils need to recruit another wide player.

The former United first-team coach would prefer to see a new forward in the same mould as Lewandowski brought in, with the Bayern Munich star boasting a record of 49 goals in 42 appearances for the German giants in 2019-20.

“They brought Ighalo in as a player who could help United in certain times and he’s actually done very, very well," Meulensteen told talkSPORT.

“But if you look at the other players there – Rashford, Martial, they’re not really out-and-out strikers.

“A lot of chances and goals can be created from the wide areas, Sancho is actually the same player.

“What I think Man United are missing is a striker of the calibre of Robert Lewandowski.

“Fifty million for Sancho, is that too much? For me, looking at what United have in those wide areas, is that where you want to strengthen?”

United extended their recent unbeaten run to 15 matches by beating Brighton 3-0 at Amex Stadium on Tuesday night.

Solskjaer's men are now only two points behind Chelsea in the race for fourth, with a home clash against Bournemouth up next this weekend.
