Mark Hughes has admitted that he agrees with Jamie Carragher on Manchester United’s lack of a striker in their attack.
Following United’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea on Sunday, Carragher confirmed his conviction that the Red Devils lack a quality striker. It was the Red Devils’ fifth goalless draw with fellow “big six” clubs this season.
Their frontmen have been challenged, with Bruno Fernandes leading the way, closely followed by Marcus Rashord on the wing.
Amid rumors about a move for Erling Haaland or Harry Kane, Carragher assumes those are the types of players United should be looking for.
He said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football: “You’ve said they’re the top scorers in the Premier League but have they got that player to score in the decisive games. That player who is going to take them to the league title. People talk about Manchester United needing a right-winger – they went for Sancho? They need a center-forward more than anything. And a right-winger… I think if you’ve got Rashford, a center-forward, and a right-sided player. And Greenwood supplementing that and filling in, he’s still a young player. He’s going to be a quality player. That’s where they’re lacking now. I wouldn’t have a go at Ole for that. I would say it’s a lack of quality – and you look at the options. You look at the options. In this country, you think of Harry Kane – or Haaland coming through.”
