Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has urged the club to sign a new midfielder before the end of the transfer window to avert a midfield crisis.
“Casemiro looked lost in midfield in these first two matches,” Neville said during commentary for Sky Sports.
“What is clear is that Manchester United’s midfield needs bolstering. Ten Hag wants a number six who can play alongside Casemiro, and at the moment the club can’t get players out to be able to fund that. If they look at the first two weeks, they have to fund it or there will be big problems. What is clear is that Ten Hag doesn’t want to revert back to Scott McTominay,” he said.
