Man United have announced plans to sign Jamie Vardy before the transfer deadline
Manchester United legend Lee Sharpe tells his former team to sign Jamie Vardy
Man United has been busy in the transfer market this summer. Jaden Sancho, Rafael Varane and Tom Heaton have signed but reports suggest they may not be made and an ex-player has urged them to sign Jamie Vardy.
Manchester United are believed to be looking for a striker in the market, with interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Halland and PSG striker Killian Mbape growing in recent weeks.
While the Red Devils have Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood on their books, the former Man United legend has urged his former team to sign Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.
Lee Sharpe believed Fox’s killer would have guaranteed his earlier side goal.
Sharpe also believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are too short up front.
“A goalscorer who can score 20/25 goals per season.”
Speaking to the Mirror, Sharpe said, “I really think they need another goalscorer. “Obviously Cavani is world class, we know he’s not going to play every game, every minute.
“The rumor mill is still circulating in Haaland about what might happen next year so you think twice about bringing someone with you this summer but if United are tight wherever it is in zone 9. Someone like Vardy I don’t know if we take it. that, but I think it would be an ideal choice for a couple of seasons.”
Jamie Vardy, who scored 148 goals for Leicester and scored in the Foxes’ 1-0 win over Wolves at the King Power Stadium last weekend, signed a new contract with the club last summer that runs until the summer of 2023.
