Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, has slammed Manchester United’s ’embarrassing’ lack of transfer strategy.

Carragher feels Manchester United’s scattergun approach to signing a new central midfielder this summer has made them a ‘laughing stock around the world.’

After chasing Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong for months, Man United quickly switched their attention to Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot and then Real Madrid’s Casemiro in recent weeks.

The rush to sign a midfielder comes after Man United failed to replace Paul Pogba, who joined Juventus this summer.

Writing in his column in the Telegraph, Carragher said: “Look at the Adrien Rabiot deal, which collapsed this week due to the player’s wage demands. If you are a club like United, you should not be pulling out of transfers after agreeing on a fee with the selling team due to wage demands.

“They have also spent weeks chasing Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, and now they are running around trying to sign Casemiro from Real Madrid. From De Jong, to Rabiot, to Casemiro. They are all different players with different styles and ages. What is the plan here? Where is the strategy? It is embarrassing.”
