Signing global stars such as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos would not solve the problems at Manchester United, says former captain Wayne Rooney.

Rooney, who now plays for MLS team DC United, does not think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will compete for the Premier League title next season.

“The first thing Ole has to do is build the squad and I don’t think bringing in one or two players for £100m is going to help the players already there”, said the former England skipper, 33.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek, he added: “Ole’s better spending £30-40m on players with potential and building the squad around those five or six players.

“You could bring in players in Ronaldo, Messi, Ramos or Bale but it’s going to cost you £350m and you’d get two years out of them and you’ve written that money off.”
