Hargreaves: Solskjaer needs four new faces.

FORMER midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to bring four players into Manchester United this summer.

United were outclassed against Barcelona and the La Liga side ran out 3-0 winners on the night, and 4-0 on aggregate, to knock United out of the Champions League.

Two crucial mistakes led to a double for Lionel Messi which ended the tie, with Philippe Coutinho adding a third late on.

Former United midfielder Hargreaves said the club needs to strengthen in midfield and the centre of defence in the summer.

"I think they need four this summer," he told BT Sport. "I think recruitment is going to be so important for United. (They need a) director of football, Ole Gunnar is going to need that help.

"They need a defensive midfield player. Fred played there, he's a ball player.

"Centre back, central midfield player is going to be so important, and a right winger. They've got great potential but the recruitment this summer has to be spot on."
