Berbatov reveals the two areas Manchester United need to strengthen

Dimitar Berbatov has revealed the two areas he believes Manchester United need to strengthen this summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was announced as the club’s next permanent manager on Thursday, with the club expected to back the 46-year-old heavily in the transfer market.

Former Manchester United striker Berbatov, who won two Premier League titles in a four-year spell at Old Trafford, believes the club should be prioritising the signing of a central defender and central midfielder in the upcoming summer window.

‘In attack, with Rashford, Martial, Lukaku and Lingard, they have everything they need, but I think they need to focus on two areas; central defence and a central midfielder who can free up Paul Pogba to play in attacking areas,’ Berbatov told Betfair.

‘United have spent a lot of money in recent seasons, so they need to make sure they don’t spend for spending’s sake; they need to think carefully about what they need and choose wisely.’
