Scholes hit out at the club's transfer model

Scholes singled Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Casemiro out, saying someone high in the hierarchy is deciding on who the team signs, not the manager. Casemiro joined United from Real Madrid last month, according to Sky Sports.

"Sancho was a young player who Manchester United spent a lot of money on, who was unproven in the league."
"And why would a club like Real Madrid let Varane go.? If you looked at him last season, he didn't look right. I didn't think it was a great transfer window."

Scholes added that without proper oversight in the recruitment department, ten Hag will be blamed if things go wrong.

"This year, Casemiro was done over two days. I wonder if it was the manager's signing. A lot of money, a long contract. I think they need to put someone in charge of recruitment. Eventually, the manager will get blamed for it."

He is yet to hit the ground running at Old Trafford, with Scott McTominay being ten Hag's preferred pivot midfielder.
