Former Manchester United star Owen Hargreaves has urged boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to spend £180m on transfer targets Jadon Sancho and Declan Rice.

Sancho of Borussia Dortmund is believed to be United’s top target for next summer, while Rice has long been linked with the Old Trafford outfit.

“Sancho would be a perfect player for this team,” Hargreaves said on BT Sport. “And they need a No.9 – whoever that might be. At some time they are going to have to invest because we have seen City and Liverpool, they’ve bought players who have made a real difference.

“Eventually you have to buy. Declan Rice fits in here, whether he costs £50m or £60m. He fits the mould of young and British. Jadon Sancho is nailed on for this team. Even if he costs £120m, he is there for a decade so you almost can’t overspend on him. When you buy, buy players who will play. They cannot afford those misses any more.”
