Ray Wilkins has questioned Manchester United's decision to spend £60million on Angel di Maria.

United smashed the British transfer record to land the Argentine winger from Real Madrid and his arrival has given supporters and the club a welcome lift.

But Wilkins does not share the excitement around the 26-year-old's arrival at Old Trafford.

According to the former United star, the money used on Di Maria would have been better spent on a top-class defender and defensive midfielder, with Mats Hummels and Sami Khedira the players he believes the club should have targeted.

"They are putting the roof on before the foundations of the house," said Wilkins, co-host on Friday's Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.
