Manchester United have been advised to sign former Liverpool star player Luis Suarez or Edinson Cavani in January if they must win the Premier League this season.
According to Philadelphia Union Youth manager Kleberson, Solskjaer’s team lack proven goalscorers having sold Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez (loan) to Inter Milan without replacing them before the end of the season.
“Lukaku and Sanchez both wanted to leave Man United. They needed to play rather than being on the bench. It has made the Man United squad weaker.
“Even though they were not playing that well, they are still top players who bring a lot to the team,” he told reporters.

He, however, charged the team to sign 32-year-old Uruguayan striker who could be leaving Barcelona any time soon.
Suarez was one of the most prolific Premier strikers during his days at Anfield and Kleberson believes his goals will help the Red Devils win some laurels this season.
He also advised Solskjaer to complete his proposed move for Edinson Cavani due to the player’s record with Paris St-German.
He believes the two players will definitely add more threat to United’s depleted front-line.
“For example, if United sold Lukaku and signed Cavani or sold Sanchez and brought in Suarez, then it would’ve been very different, but they did not do that.” he said.
As much as the two Uruguayans are great strikers, they are far from being in their best and they don’t seem to suit United’s youthful setup considering their age( both at 32).
