‘He has the potential to be anything he wants to be’ – Scholes identifies ideal signing for Manchester United

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has identified the ideal signing for Manchester United this January.

Paul Scholes told ESPN: “If I was Ole and could sign a defender this month, I’d go for Wesley Fofana at Leicester.

“He’s only 20, but he has been outstanding and he has the potential to be anything he wants to be.

“United have done OK at the back this season, but they have been exposed when playing against the big teams, and that’s another problem they need to solve.”

Fofana has helped Leicester City keep 7 clean sheets in the Premier League and put in some solid performances for them this season.

However, the Foxes will be unwilling to strengthen a direct title rival by selling one of their best players in January considering they are also in the title race.
