Louis van Gaal‘s side currently sit sixth in the Premier League and are on the verge of being knocked out of the Europa League.
Man United have spent in excess of £250m since van Gaal took over at Old Trafford in 2014 but Scholes insisted the club need more high-profile signings if they are to become a force once again.
“I’d like Luka Modric. How old is he now? Might be a bit too old, but he’s a great player,” Scholes said.
“I like Raphael Varane. I said realistic and I’m picking Real Madrid players? We probably need a centre forward but there’s not too many of them about so I’m gonna say I’d like us to bring Paul Pogba back.”
Modric and Varane are both at Real Madrid, while Pogba left United in 2012 to join Italian side Juventus.
It is unlikely that United will be able to offer any potential incomings Champions League football next term so getting world-class talent will be easier said than done. It will be interesting to see how United approach the window.
