Man United still want superstars, says assistant manager Phelan

Manchester United still want to bring in 'superstars' despite opting for youth in the summer window, says the club's assistant boss Mike Phelan. 

United has hugely depended on youngsters with the likes of Axel Tuanzebe, Scott McTominay, and Mason Greenwood this season under coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils brought in Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan Bissaka during the summer transfer window and they've also been linked with moves for Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and RB Salzburg respectively. 

And Phelan says the struggling side is still interested in marquee players even though they want to bring through more young talents.

"I think there has got to be a blend," he told London Evening Standard.  

"I think Manchester United still do want superstars, but I think they still want to see them coming through and progressing and being part of something special."

“The fans are changing all the time. We’ve got senior fans, old age pensioners, young fans, but it’s become far more global than it’s ever been and I think all those people understand what Manchester United is all about otherwise they wouldn’t support them.
