Paul Scholes has urged Manchester United to sign Luka Modric, Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba this summer.
Louis van Gaal’s side face the prospect of no Champions League football next season unless they secure a top-four finish or win the Europa League - although they must overturn a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool later this week.
United have spent in excess of £250 million since Van Gaal took charge in 2014 but Scholes believes the club need more high-profile signings.
“I’d like Luka Modric. How old is he now? Might be a bit too old, but he’s a great player,” Scholes told United We Stand fanzine.
“I like Raphael Varane. I said realistic and I’m picking Real Madrid players?
“We probably need a centre forward but there’s not too many of them about so I’m gonna say I’d like us to bring Paul Pogba back.”
