Rooney: "Messi and Cristiano wouldn't solve Man Utd's problems"

Neymar took a brutal tackle from Miranda in Brazil training – but did not get much sympathy

Rooney doubled down and also believes that Solskjaer's team won't compete for the Premier League title next season.

The 21-year-old will move to Old Trafford for a fee of around £15 million, potentially rising to around £22m, to become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first signing of the summer.

Speaking to BBC, the former United captain further explained the need for the Premier League giants to reconsider their transfer strategy this summer.

And with arch-rivals Liverpool becoming European champions only last week, United are longing to bring back their own glory days and improve substantially on their sixth-place finish in the top flight in 2018-19.

Rooney said United's problems will not be solved by spending money on big name signings.

Andreas Pereira is set to be offered a new four-year contract by Manchester United, according to reports in the British media. He then was sent out on loan again to Belgian side Kortrijk, but faced steep competition and only made appearances in their unsuccessful playoff campaign.

But he insists that this is the only way that the club can rediscover the success he had under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Aberdeen are keen to re-sign the 23-year-old, but since returning to Manchester, Wilson has been released due to the huge dip in form he's experienced since his career peaked in 2014.

"Manchester United is delighted to announce that it has agreed, in principle, terms with both Swansea City and Daniel James for his transfer to the club", a United statement read.

The 22-year-old experienced relegation in an underwhelming season with Scunthorpe in League One.

"So, let them have that time, let Ole have that time to build a team for the next two or three years who are going to compete not only at Premier League level but at Champions League level".

Realistically he will either be sent out on another loan spell to a low-tier English club, or Solskjaer will cut out the middle-man and release him.
