Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole expects the Red Devils to move for a new centre-forward this summer.

Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole has tipped the Red Devils to move for a new centre-forward in this summer's transfer window.

United are expected to spend heavily this summer after ending the 2018-19 Premier League season in sixth position.

Romelu Lukaku has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent weeks, while it has been claimed that the club could reignite their interest in Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski.

Cole, who scored 121 goals during his time with United, has said that his former team will "most probably" look to bring a new striker to the club ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

"Manchester United have always been a club that will buy centre-forwards, that's the tradition of the club. I can't see that changing, because they've already spent big money on centre-forwards," Cole told talkSPORT.

"Will they add another one? Most probably they will, because to win the championship, to win anything you need to score goals and you need as many goals you can get in the team. So it wouldn't surprise me if they bought another centre forward."

United have reportedly been locked in talks with Juventus for over a month as they attempt to sign Paulo Dybala from the Italian champions this summer.
