Former Manchester United winger Willie Morgan has urged Sir Alex to try his hand at signing Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling.
It looks more and more likely that Nani will be on his way out of Old Trafford with the Portuguese winger yet to extend his current deal, thus a number of names have been thrown around as replacements.
Most recently Sir Alex has been linked with Arsenal’s Theo Walcott as he too is stalling over a new deal but Morgan feels United should try and snatch away Liverpool starlet Sterling.
Having broken into the first team this season, he, like Nani and Walcott, is dragging his feet over a new contract, but with 18 months left on his current deal Liverpool haven’t quite got their backs against the wall, meaning any United approach is likely to be rebuffed.
But Morgan thinks the 18 year old would suit to a t as he told the MEN:
”Sterling is the first winger I have seen in a long time who looks like a proper winger. He looks very good already and I think he is going to be great.
“If you just let him go wide on the outside of the full-backs all the time I think he will be a great player. He’ll frighten people to death, so long as nobody coaches it out of him. He’s the brightest prospect out there and would suit United.”
