Club legend wants Manchester United to sign 28-goal star

Manchester United legend Paul Ince has urged the Red Devils to complete a swoop for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Manchester United started off their Premier League campaign with a stunning 4-0 victory over West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday and new signing Romelu Lukaku starred on the day by scoring a wonderful brace.

With the presence of Lukaku, the United attacking lineup certainly looks a lot more potent than it did last season and if the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba also contribute in the goalscoring department, the Red Devils will surely find the back of the net on numerous occasions during the current campaign.

Despite the dangerous looking attack though, ex-Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince is not entirely convinced of his former side’s ability to score goals and believes that the Red Devils need to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic in January as he thinks that Rashford is not prolific enough.

Ince said, “United still need to get another big name in, a goalscorer. 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.”
