Former England defender Joleon Lescott has urged Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign PSG captain Marquinhos.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is reportedly interested in signing the Brazilian defender and has urged the Chelsea board to push for the transfer.

Lescott said: “That is the biggest thing, for me. Harry Kane, yes, he would improve them, but I think it’s more important to go and get a centre-half.

“I was speaking to Rio [Ferdinand] recently, we were talking about Marquinhos.

“I think if they were to get him, someone of that stature, that would instantly propel them into contenders.”

“If they don’t do that, yeah they can score goals and win games but they can’t rely on the defensive side of their game against the bigger teams in the league.” Lescott continued.
