Man United legend Robson calls on Jose to add some ‘flair’

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has urged Jose Mourinho to sign “a few flair players” to take the club to the next level.

United are closing in on their first summer signing after agreeing a £30.7m with Benfica for Swedish central-half Victor Lindelof.

The Red Devils are also said to be in advanced talks for attacking duo Alvaro Morata and Ivan Perisic, from Real Madrid and Inter Milan respectively.

Despite claiming two trophies last season, United never came close to challenging for the Premier League title and Robson believes their attacking play has to improve if they are to compete for top spot next term.

“It certainly was a great ending in Stockholm,” Robson told “It finished off an okay season and made it into a very good season.

“To win the Community Shield, EFL Cup and then the Europa League, to go into the Champions League, has set everyone up great for next season.

“When you look at the way Jose has turned the club around, I know we won the FA Cup the year before, but he came in and brought in four new players who I think improved the team and improved the squad.

“So that went very well and then we got into a way of playing. Okay, we drew a lot of games at home but we weren’t getting beaten.

“We are a difficult team to beat now and what you can do, if you set your stall out that way to be difficult to beat, is to then add a few flair players to that squad.

“All of a sudden, you’re winning a lot more games than you’re drawing. So I can see us up there challenging for the title next season.”
