Brighton striker Glen Murray has claimed former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez could be missing link in Manchester United’s front-three.

The experienced centre-forward believes the Red devils’ attack needs someone who can interchange with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. He believes the Uruguayan can be the pure goalscorer United have been looking for a while.

Speaking about what Man United need to create a formidable front-three for next season, Glenn Murray said (as quoted by Oyogist): “I think Martial is good enough to be part of that front three.

“I don’t think Solskjaer wants somebody to lead the line; I think he wants a more interchangeable three that when the play breaks down the three strikers he picks are comfortable anywhere.

“Saying that, I do think that with Martial and Rashford at either side, a pure goalscorer in the middle would benefit Manchester United massively. Someone that springs to mind who I think would thrive in this team is someone like Van Nistelrooy.

“If you’re talking about bringing someone into Manchester United to do that, to score the goals and take the pressure off that three, I would say someone like Jimenez. Or, a curveball, Luis Suarez from Barcelona.”
