Paul Merson has urged Manchester United to consider signing England starlets Jadon Sancho, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Declan Rice this summer.
The Red Devils are likely to be linked with a whole host of names in the coming weeks and months as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer begins to think about bolstering his squad ahead of next season.
Manchester United have struggled to find consistent form in recent weeks and they were dumped out of the Champions League last week following a 3-0 loss to FC Barcelona at Camp Nou in the quarter-finals.
Solskjaer will be keen to bring in the right kind of player to help transform Manchester United back into Premier League title contenders in the coming seasons.
And former Arsenal star Merson feels that the Red Devils could benefit from signing some young English talent such as the likes of Sancho, Hudson-Odoi and Rice.
Writing in his column for the Daily Star, Merson said: “I don’t think Solskjaer is going to get four or five years to get this right. United just don’t have that kind of patience any more, even for one of their own.
“If they’re not in the Champions League next season they won’t be able to attract any really big, world-class names either.
“But if they invest in younger talent like Rice, Sancho and Hudson-Odoi they would be getting players who could make an impact straight away but also get better.
“Imagine what those three would be like in four or five years? Rice could be running the England midfield by then, Hudson-Odoi and Sancho could be two of the best wingers in Europe.
“Those are three of England’s brightest talents. Give it time and suddenly we could be talking about United dominating Europe again. They are that good.
“Sancho has had the balls to leave a big club and go and play in a foreign country to prove he is good enough, and he’s now reaping the rewards.
“He’s involved in a title race and has got into the England team, and he looks like he has bags of confidence. I’m very impressed with him.
“As a Chelsea fan I wouldn’t like to see Hudson-Odoi leave but from United’s point of view what a signing he would be.
“He looks like he has big future and he took his England debut in his stride. That’s a very good sign if you ask me.
“Put those two either side of Rashford and that front three would be feared around Europe. I think it ticks all the boxes.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Sunday when they travel to Everton in the top flight.
The Red Devils are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table as they bid to try and finish in the top four this season to book their place in next term’s Champions League.
