Former United defender Jaap Stam has urged the club to splash the cash and sign an ideal defensive partner for Captain Harry Maguire.

Speaking to 888sport, the legendary defender said:

“Maguire has played well with Lindelof and then you have Bailly, Jones and even Luke Shaw who is playing as a left centre-back now as well.

“It’s very important that you have someone next to you who you can trust. If I was Man Utd I’d be looking for another centre-back. I’d bring someone else in even though the others are doing well.

“They need another because of injuries and that gives you options as to how you play. Ole wants to play out from the back sometimes and take risks and you need the right players to do that.”
