Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has named the one player who he believes could have featured in his Red Devils side.

Paul Scholes, 48, won 11 Premier League titles, two UEFA Champions League titles and multiple domestic cups at the Old Trafford club.

The midfielder is a certified Old Trafford legend after coming through the club’s famed youth academy and being a crucial part of the Class of ’92.

Scholes has spoken about the United player he believes could have made it into his side and the answer may well shock you.

Scholes names midfielder as the player who would have gotten in

The former United midfielder has named Casemiro as the only one who could have made it into any of the teams the midfielder played in.

Speaking on Rio Ferdinand’s FIVE, Scholes said: “It’s difficult because we had such a brilliant squad of players.

“But… you think of Casemiro. Once he came into that team last year, there was a huge difference.

“The experience he had from Real Madrid, winning trophy after trophy in the best team.

“How it took him so long to get into the team I’ll never know. But he’s in there now.”

Is Scholes right

It’s hard to disagree with a midfielder who has won so much in the modern game, but you would imagine Casemiro would be on the bench with Roy Keane, unsurprisingly, ahead of him.

Scholes did also mention Marcus Rashford but was unsure if the English winger had done enough to get into his team.

“I don’t know if some of those players could have played in our team. Marcus [Rashford] was brilliant, [but] I don’t know.”

Casemiro has been a revolutionary addition to the United midfield since he joined last summer for £70 million and his impact on the squad over the past 12 months cannot be overstated.
