Scholes: I Wanted Kroos & Fabregas At Utd

Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has revealed he advised the club to sign Toni Kroos and Cesc Fabregas as he rings the alarm bells following the dismal start against Swansea.

The 39-year-old explained that he was asked about Kroos and Fabregas at the end of last season when he was part of Ryan Giggs’ coaching staff.

“I was asked my opinion on whether the club should sign Cesc Fabregas or Toni Kroos this summer,” he wrote in his column for the Independent.

“I thought there was only one response to that difficult choice between two great players. I said United should sign them both.

“I do not know what happened to the Kroos and Fabregas deals over the summer. The club were originally working on both of them.

“Perhaps the deal could not be done in the end. Perhaps Louis van Gaal did not fancy either of them.

“Either way, the situation now, with 11 days of the transfer window left, has become ever more desperate for my former club. They have to sign some quality players.

Scholes insists it’s time for United to sign quality players, otherwise they risk being left behind by their rivals.

“I am scared for United. Genuinely scared that they could go into the wilderness in the same way that Liverpool did in the 1990s,” he added.

“I realise that it is just 15 months since United won the league for the 20th time in the club’s history.

“Ed Woodward keeps telling us that the money is there. I would say that now is the time to start spending it.”
