Man United legend claims Alexis Sanchez has right character for club


With the futures of the 35-year-old and Wayne Rooney uncertain, United have been linked with a big-money move for Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann.

The post Bryan Robson Wants Manchester United To Sign Alexis Sanchez appeared first on 'He works hard for the team, can score and create goals.

"When you put all that package into one, he's exactly the type that we would like here".

United's manager is believed to be looking for an out-and-out striker, which may mean the more creative and versatile Sanchez does not quite fit the bill.

"If they do that, it takes the pressure off other people".

Robson's former team-mate Gary Pallister agrees and believes Pogba also brings a physical presence to the team that has been lacking in recent seasons.

"It's been our Achilles heel this season", the former defender said.

"And the EFL Cup was a good win - Southampton gave us a really good game in the final". When he's been missing we've missed something.

'You hope Rashford and Martial improve that little bit again, ' added Robson.

"I think with a full pre-season behind him, you'll see the best of Paul Pogba".

Robson urged the Manchester-born teenager to keep working on his finishing.

He said: "For Marcus, he's scored loads of goals at every level he has gone into. It's just confidence and practice". Juan's missed a few, Martial and Rashford definitely have. "That's what makes a top club - real competition between the players".

Robson, however, thinks he should stay.

'As far as I'm concerned it's going to cost a hell of a lot of money if we want to bring two strikers into the club to go with Rashford and Martial.

"I would like Wayne to stay".

Robson feels ups and downs are normal for young players and is optimistic about the 19-year-old's potential after a strong finish to the season.

'What you've got to do is improve in that area.

"His two England games were fantastic and he's pushed himself back to the fore".

"If the next step is to come back, well, he certainly knows the place and I imagine he'd be very comfortable here".
