Paul Scholes has named three players he would love to see in Manchester United shirts.
The Red Devils legend was asked what he makes of United's current crop of players and claimed the Old Trafford giants are lacking some world class talent in the starting XI.
When pressed on his answer he revealed that he believes Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is crying out for a player capable of bridging the gap between the midfield and forwards.
He then went one better, providing the names of players already doing this in the Premier League, at Manchester City and Chelsea respectively.

"I'm thinking more of a [Kevin] De Bruyne, [Eden] Hazard or David Silva," Scholes told ESPN.
"We have Jesse [Lingard] who, on his day, can be that type of player, but you never really know what his best position is.

"Juan Mata has those type of qualities but the manager plays him wide on the right-hand side and he's never going to have the legs to play that position.
"I've been there, being put out wide, and you hate it. You want to get into the middle of the pitch where things are happening and pace isn't as vital."
