At a GlanceSports – Manchester United will have an alternative transfer target amidst their struggle to finalize a deal for Jadon Sancho, claims Andy Cole,
But the former Red Devils striker is not convinced that another center-back should be part of the plan.
The former Red Devils forward does not believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to spend a fortune on another center-back, with the attacker also being a target.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is scouring the market for potential new players at Old Trafford.
Donny van de Beek is the only player acquired so far, with frustration experienced elsewhere.
Sancho proved to be United's most problematic pursuit,

Cole expects the adversity to take the Red Devils in a different direction, with many other attacking talents to consider.
He also believed that the call for defensive reinforcements would be ignored if the value in that area proved elusive.
Big money has been invested in the likes of Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
The former United player told The Mirror: “Manchester United are a team that wants to add players every season.
“We keep talking about center-backs, but United have so many center-backs at the moment, I'm not sure how many center-backs one can buy.

While expecting the Red Devils to keep looking for new faces,
He added: “Ole made Man United play the way Man United should – attacking football.
