Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told to sign Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante this summer by Lee Sharpe.

The former Manchester United star also urged Solskjaer to ditch Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic and try to sign the former Leicester City star.

He told talkSPORT: “They have to go out and buy ready-made world-class players.

“They’ve got a few young players who are coming through, (Scott) McTominay looks really good.

“There are a few young players in the team so they need ready-made, experienced, world-class players to put them back on that sort of level and stage.

“I’m not sure it’s really worked out for Lukaku, a world-class centre-forward would be great.

“Defensively they look a little bit uncertain so maybe a centre-half.

“If I was at United, I’d probably look at swapping Matic, he’s been brilliant but he’s probably lost a yard.

“I’d go out and spend some money and get Kante because they don’t seem to fancy him at Chelsea.”

Despite the win, Solskjaer – who was appointed United’s permanent manager last month – said: ‘They played better than us, it is fair to say, I don’t think anyone will disagree.

‘Sometimes you get more than you deserve and today is one of those nights.’

The three points sees United climb to fifth in the Premier League table, two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea who face Liverpool on Sunday.
