We recall that Man United have been strongly linked with a transfer move for Sancho this summer.

But Scholes believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side needs a centre-forward and not a winger.

"I do not think [signing a winger is] a major priority," Scholes told BT Sport.

"Do not get me wrong, Sancho is a top-quality footballer. I think he would improve any team in world football.

"I am talking about Liverpool, Man City, Barcelona, Real Madrid - he would improve all of them.

"His stats say that he's a goalscorer, he will score lots of goals, he will make lots of goals, there is no doubt he would be a big asset to the team.

"I just think we already have three forwards, or wide men/centre-forwards that are very similar to Sancho, possibly not quite as good as him but potentially I think they could be."

Scholes added: "I think if that is Harry Kane you are talking about now, I'd be more desperate to sign him than Sancho at this stage, although don't get me wrong, as I said I think he's a top-quality footballer."
