Ince says United ‘still need goalscorer’, doubts Rashford

Manchester United “still need” to sign a goalscorer, just in case Romelu Lukaku “has an off-day”, according to Paul Ince.

United started the season in impressive fashion, beating West Ham 4-0 with Lukaku scoring twice.

The Belgian is one of three players United have signed this summer, along with Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic.

Jose Mourinho is thought to want another offensive player – a winger – to complete his squad, but former midfielder Ince believes another goalscorer in the ilk of Zlatan Ibrahimovic should be a priority.

“United still need to get another big name in, a goalscorer,” he told Paddy Power.

“Yes, they’ve got Lukaku, but if he’s injured or has an off-day, I don’t know who’s going to get the goals.

“This won’t go down well, but unless it comes to when he gets older, I don’t see Marcus Rashford getting them. He misses too many chances at the moment.

“There’s talk of Zlatan Ibrahimovic coming back in January, which I think could be brilliant. He was unbelievable for United last season, and is an out-and-out lethal goalscorer.

“He’s the sort of player they need even though they already have Lukaku.

“But everyone, from all over the pitch, needs to pull their weight. They can’t be totally reliant on Lukaku. His 25 goals won’t be enough to bring a title back to Manchester United.”
