Keane names two positions that Man Utd still need to improve

Roy Keane has revealed where he believes Manchester United need to strengthen this summer and believes the club should be targeting defensive additions.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are expected to be busy in the summer transfer market as the Norwegian continues his rebuild at Old Trafford, with the club having been linked with a host of big-name signings including Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

However, Roy Keane – who won seven Premier League titles during a glittering career at Manchester United – believes his former side should be prioritising defensive additions as they look to improve ahead of next season, admitting he has been left unconvinced by Solskjaer’s current options both centrally and at left-back.

“Do you know what? Every time you talk about the big clubs and what they need, everyone always talks about attacking players. I still think they need one or two defenders,” Keane told Sky Sports.

“I’m still not convinced with the centre-backs, I’m certainly not convinced with [Luke] Shaw. I think [Brandon] Williams has done well as a young kid, even though he’s right-footed playing on that side.

“But do you know what? I know they’ve been linked with a number of players, Grealish, Maddison – but nobody springs to mind to be honest with you. I’ve not had my breakfast yet so you’ve kind of caught me off guard.”
