Edinson Cavani continued with his fine form as he produced yet another top performance in the 2-0 victory over Granada in the Europa League quarter-final clash at Old Trafford.

Cavani is reportedly keen to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, and United are in search of a new striker.

However, former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes that United do not need to spend money on another forward.

According to Hargreaves, United should focus on strengthening other key areas in the team like the centre-back, the right wing and the central midfield. Hargreaves believes United have enough firepower in the attacking area, as he has backed the club to keep the Uruguayan.

“With Cavani there he is almost an insurance policy and you can maybe go spend the money on three other players in important positions,” Hargreaves told BT Sport.

“Cavani, if he played the whole season, he could get you 25 goals.”

He continued: “They are the second highest scorers in the Premier League already, is it really their biggest issue? Everybody could do with Harry Kane or Erling Haaland.

“Some of their best players are Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes. Those boys will get you enough goals.

“I don’t think its realistic for United to win the Premier League next season. But they have to find a way to bridge the gap.

“You bridge that gap by bringing in another centre back, bringing in another central midfielder and getting another right winger.

“A lot of people have played out on that right hand side and they haven’t really found it. I think to go find a winger, Jadon Sancho would be amazing.

“You think about Raphinha at Leeds, you think about what he could do at this United team. You can’t spend £100m on every player.”
