Updated: Aug 11, 2019

Solskjaer's squad needed "a couple more midfielders" before the season started. 

Manchester United are lacking central midfielders, according to club legend Ryan Giggs.  

United failed to add any midfielders, despite Marouane Fellaini leaving I n January and Ander Herrera joining Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer after his contract came to an end last term.

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford all summer but they’ve managed to keep hold of the Frenchman.

However, the former Red Devils winger believes Solskjaer has not got enough central midfielders to choose from in his squad.

"I think we need a couple more midfielders," United's record appearance holder told ESPN. "If Paul Pogba goes we talk about culture change, but obviously you need quality.

"You might not like it but come Sunday if Paul Pogba isn't in that midfield or the week after, and we've got the midfielders that we've got at our club, then we're short.

"That's the problem."
