Manchester United Legend Gordon Mcqueen has urged the Old Trafford side to make a move for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.
The Manchester United Icon believes Jose Mourinho should target Wilshere and build his team around the midfielder.
Wilshere is highly rated at the Emirates and in the whole of England and despite struggling with injuries last season, his quality is not in doubt.
There is expected to be a major overhaul at Old Trafford this summer and Mcqueen feels Wilshere should be their their top target.
‘United could build a team around a fit Jack Wilshere, but right now I doubt Arsenal would sell him,’ as quoted by the Metro.
‘They let Robin van Persie go to United, so you never know.
‘United are a huge club and big-name players will always listen to them, but they are not in the Champions League next season and that will work against them.
‘His budget will be less than Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, who already have a much stronger squad, so there will have to be a lot of wheeling and dealing. Mourinho will have to show his skills in the market place to make United competitive.’
Wilshere made only three appearances for the Gunners in the just concluded season and still made the England squad travelling to the Euros. The 24 year old’s career may have been limited by injuries but it is unthinkable that Wenger would sell one of the club’s prized assets to a rival.
Manchester City have also been linked with the midfielder but the Citizens interest have cooled off.
