Teddy Sheringham recently said that Man United don’t need to sign Cody Gakpo. Do you agree?

I still think that Man United need a winger and because everyone is talking about Cody Gakpo, people are going to assume that Man United are going to go for him but I don’t know if that’s the situation.

Gakpo would be a player that would fit into the Man United squad.

There would be questions over whether he can deliver straight away because he’s from Holland or do Man United need to go for a more experienced winger that has maybe played at a certain level so that they can have an impact straight away.

Man United need a winger that can deliver a certain quality of football because Jadon Sancho isn’t delivering yet. Marcus Rashford is doing very well, Antony has come in and is scoring a couple of goals but I think he needs to step up because he’s not performing to the standard I know he can.

To be consistent, Man United need forwards who are performing almost every game and that’s why you need to have options because if someone isn’t performing then you’re able to put someone else in who can.


Do Man United have more pulling power than Liverpool to get Cody Gakpo to join them over Liverpool?

Man United still have the pulling power to convince Cody to sign for them ahead of Liverpool.

Before the start of the season, everyone was talking about them [Liverpool] being one of the contenders to win the Premier League title and I don’t rule them out but we’re seeing that even a team like that with a lot of experience is struggling to do well.

Whereas Man United have hired a new manager, new players, there’s a new plan in terms of what they’re trying to achieve and that makes it interesting for young players, especially from Holland to join Man United, one of the biggest clubs in the world and work with Erik ten Hag.

Is Declan Rice what Man United need even after they signed Casemiro?

Manchester United need to decide whether Declan Rice is better than Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek or whether they can improve what they already have at the club and then they won’t need to spend that money on Rice.

Casemiro is at a certain age and it’s difficult for him to play every game so Manchester United need to rotate at times.

I think Rice is a very good player and he needs to make the next step in his career to a big team. He’s been solid but I think it’s still too early to write off Scott McTominay. I think Ten Hag should play McTominay a bit deeper so he can take over from Casemiro, but he does need to learn a lot more.
