Ex-United legend Gary Neville has urged his former club to sign a top winger this summer, when speaking on SkySports

With the emergence of Mason Greenwood this season and most notably since lockdown, there has been talk amongst some football experts that United do not need to strengthen in that area.

The 18-year-old has netted four goals in five games and has looks like such an exciting prospect for United for years and years to come.

However, Neville believes not investing is not the United way and shared his views on the matter.

“He (Greenwood) will play, I think he can play centre-forward, I think he can play left-wing, I think he can play right-wing,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“To me, not signing a right-winger thinking he would be out of the team is not the right way to look at it.

Gary Neville is not afraid to speak his mind as a pundit.

“Manchester United have always signed great players to challenge other great players in positions. Manchester United had four centre-forwards in 1999.

“You don’t just say ‘where will he play?’. Great players will challenge each other, they’ll improve, they will find a way to get into the team.

“They won’t feel belittled by it or challenged to the point where they sulk, they will step up to the task and they will go for it.

“I’m sure that’s what Mason Greenwood will do. He’s still young but so exciting it’s untrue. I love watching him.”
