Manchester United legend Gary Neville doesn’t believe United need to sign a new centre forward this summer.

According to the former Manchester United right back, 21 year old Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is capable of carrying the Manchester United scoring burden next season.

Despite rumours claiming Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez could leave Old Trafford this summer, Neville believes Solskjaer can depend on Rashford and Anthony Martial to lead the line.

Asked which England youngster he felt had the most potential at this moment, Neville responded: “Rashford. Because I love him.

“United, obviously with Lukaku playing up front, there’s been talk of them needing a new centre forward.

“Alexis (Sanchez) hasn’t done particularly well but they don’t need a new centre-forward if Martial and Rashford can step up. Rashford in particular.’

Instead of signing a striker this summer, Neville wants Solskjaer to strengthen United’s defence and midfield.

“United need to strengthen at the back with full backs and centre backs, they need another midfield player,” added Neville.

“Reports this morning are that (Ander) Herrera is going to PSG, so they’ll need to strengthen in midfield just to replace what’s there.”

Do you agree with Neville that Manchester United can depend on Rashford to score the goals next season?
