Scholes has a Christmas shopping list for United

It is no secret that Manchester United are lacking quality in midfield.

Their former midfield star Paul Scholes has now waded in and outlines the exact type of player United should look to buy in the January transfer market.

“There’s a lot made of midfielders nowadays, are they a holding midfielder or an attacking midfielder which does my head in a little bit,” Scholes told BT Sport.

“As a good midfielder you need to be able to do a bit of everything.

“As a central midfield player, especially at Man United, you have to be capable of doing everything.

“You have to be able to help your defence, you have to help in attack.

“It’s not just about sitting and being a holding midfield player. It’s not just about getting forward. You have to have a bit of everything as players I played with had.”
