Graeme Souness says Manchester United’s acquisition of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and Raphael Varane from Real Madrid is not enough. 

“If Manchester United have finished their transfer business with the signings of Jadon Sancho for £73 million from Borussia Dortmund and Raphael Varane for an initial £34 million from Real Madrid, then that is not enough investment for them to win the trophies this season that a club of their magnitude should be aiming for: the Premier League and Champions League,” Souness said.

“The signing required to catapult them into title-winning contention with Manchester City and Chelsea is a striker who guarantees 30 goals a season.

“There are few of them around and you will pay a premium if you are a Premier League club and another premium on top of that if you are one of the big boys.”
