Former Arsenal star, Paul Merson has stated that Manchester United need to sign new defenders if they are to avoid an embarrassing defeat to PSG in the Champions League.
Despite three clean sheets in their last four games, Merson is still far from impressed and has named Thiago Silva, Toby Alderweireld and Kalidou Koulibaly as potential new recruits for the Red Devils.
“Defensively they are not good enough,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“I dread to think what the score will be against PSG in the Champions League next month.
“They need defenders. If it were not for bad finishing by Tottenham then it could have been any score.
“Toby Alderweireld and Kalidou Koulibaly are two players United should be targeting. Those two are the best two centre-backs in the world, along with Thiago Silva.
“Alderweireld probably could be purchased at a reasonable price too,” he said.
