Man Utd urged to sign Foxes star to form ‘outstanding’ partnership

Tim Sherwood has urged Manchester United to sign Caglar Soyuncu to partner Harry Maguire at the heart of their defence.

Maguire – despite being oversung – has had an impressive debut season at Old Trafford, alongside Victor Lindelof.

And Sherwood believes United can find the England international a better central defensive partner, despite Lindelof being one of the unsung heroes.

Soyuncu has been one of the surprises of the season, making 39 appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side, and Sherwood claims he would be the ideal partner for Maguire.

He told DAZN: “I think they need extra cover at centre-back.

“I think Soyuncu – I know Robbie Savage won’t be happy because they’re taking him from Leicester – but if the money is right they sell, like they did with Harry Maguire.

“I think he would be outstanding there. He can play on the front foot and keep them up the field.”

 

 

Sherwood also claims United need sign a top striker if they want to dominate at home and abroad.

He added: “They need a no9. Find a no9.

“It’s very difficult to go out and get a Harry Kane but if they managed to do that – they are the biggest club in the world – then they can challenge. They are that close.

“This boy Bruno Fernandes has made such a difference to them. He’s the last piece of the jigsaw that they needed but the dead piece of the jigsaw which is Paul Pogba he’s brought him back to life, brought him into the party again.”
