Lately there has been a lot of talk that there could be a swap deal between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United. Jadon Sancho could return to the club where he had his best days, while on the other hand, Donyell Malen would come to Manchester United. Dwight Yorke, former Manchester United player, believes that the club must be careful. It is necessary to sign players who can make a difference.

I’ve not seen much of Donyell Malen, but I know he’s scored a few goals in the Bundesliga. I haven’t seen enough of him to make a judgment on him, but he seems to be an alright player,’ Yorke told Instant Casino, quoted by METRO!

‘United can’t waste money signing players who won’t improve the squad. I’m an aspiring coach, and that’s the first thing I take into consideration before I sign anyone. If this player doesn’t raise the level of the position he’s playing in, then the team will continue on the same path. 

United need to sign players who will be comfortable with the pressure of the club and who will help them win football matches. A good player performs even when the rest of the team isn’t. We’re not seeing that in the current squad. Scott McTominay is the only one who looks as if he has a fire in his belly.'

Dwight Yorke: It’s hard to see any of these players producing something extraordinary

Yorke believes that United need players who have passion and can handle the pressure of playing for a big club. Looking at the current players, Yorke is not optimistic that any of them can "lift" the team when things are not going well. United is missing several such players.

'Good players can influence matches even when the team looks down and out. None of the current players look a threat and they all look fragile.

It’s hard to see any of these players producing something extraordinary, but every team needs individuals like that. Football is always easier when you’re playing well, but you really know about players when they’re not. That’s where to find out how good they really are. 

I could play in this City side with ease, but you find out who can really play when the chips are down. That’s when you find out who wants the ball and who shies away from it – that’s when true characters are revealed.’
