Bryan Robson says Manchester United need 'world class' signings

Bryan Robson has told The Mail that Manchester United need to make ‘world class’ signings this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed as permanent manager, the club confirmed.
Now attention is turning towards the next steps, and potential summer transfers.
Former Manchester United captain and legendary number seven Bryan Robson wants to see the Red Devils buy big.

A strong summer of recruitment could be the making of Ole’s legacy — not necessarily players in quantity, but world-class quality.

A report published by ESPN claimed United want to sign young emerging talent, rather than ‘past it’ stars.

Solskjaer was asked about transfers, and was cagey about potential moves.
He told the
club website: “Of course, we’ve been discussing how to move the club forward.
“That doesn’t mean we’ve said x amount of money or x amount of players. We’ve sat down and discussed, but now it’s easier to be clear about what we need to do because we will do some business this summer.”
There will be outgoings as well as incomings at Old Trafford, and Solskjaer’s permanent appointment makes it easier to do business.
The transfer window closes on August 9, but United will really want as many players in as possible before pre-season begins.

As Robson points out, quality is more important than quantity.
