Paul Scholes gives Manchester United’s midfield verdict after Bruno Fernandes’ move

Paul Scholes admits that Manchester United have a difficult situation in their hands trying to decide the best midfield for the rest of the season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team strengthened the team last month when it entered into an agreement to bring Bruno Fernandes into the club from Sporting Lisbon.

United were in desperate need of reinforcement in midfield following injuries to Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba, however the duo are approaching a return in the coming weeks.

The news of the injury comes as a push to United ahead of a busy schedule, but now Solskjaer has a task to do as he tries to decide on his best midfield set.

Scholes believes that Nemanja Matic and Fred have both been very good in this calendar year, but could abandon after Fernandes’ arrival.

“I think Matic has gone very well in the past few weeks, we know that Fred has really improved in the past six or seven weeks,” he told BBC Five Live.

“He has yet to bring goals and assists to his game, but you should put him there. McTominay’s form in the first part of the season and then you have Fernandes and Pogba.

“Fernandes could possibly play a higher role in the field, he seems to have goals in him, as if he wanted to shoot, as if he wanted to score, so I think United is now trying to adapt to the best players and bring them all on the pitch in any position they play. “
