SIR ALEX FERGUSON has told Manchester United they need to buy a striker to support Marcus Rashford.
The England star is on a sensational run of 16 goals in 19 games, helping United win the Carabao Cup on Sunday.
Fergie was at Wembley for the match and was very complimentary of Rashford after the full-time whistle.
But he called on United boss Erik ten Hag to sign a striker in the summer to add another source of goals.
He told Sky Sports: "I don’t think he’s a striker, he operates really from the left-hand side.
"But fantastic. His finishing is always good. He always keeps his shots down, which is really important for a striker.

"He’s in a great vein of form and unfortunately for us he’s the main source of goals. We could do with an extra one, you know. But he’s doing it for us."

Tottenham star Harry Kane has been heavily linked and is said to be on a three-man shortlist.
Ten Hag has reportedly made the England captain his no1 target with Kane's contract expiring in 2024.
