Former France manager Raymond Domenech says Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin should sign for Manchester United before moving on to a stronger side.
The Frenchman is a target for Arsenal and Manchester United according to reports and Domenech believes the 25-year-old should make a "temporary" move to Old Trafford.
It is not the first time the 63-year-old has been critical of the strength of the Red Devils.
He in fact urged Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to snub the Red Devils to make a move to Chelsea, Arsenal or Manchester City.
"For him, [United] is a good move," Domenech is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.
"If he wants to be with the French national team, then he has to be in this Champions League - but if he stays at Southampton, no luck.
"Manchester United is a good move for him.
"United are better than Southampton, sure, but it's not [Manchester] City, it's not Chelsea. For him, the first thing is to leave Southampton.
"After, if he gets a team just behind the three big teams, it's good. Maybe after, he'll come through. He is good enough for the Champions League."
