“I’m not 100% sure how close the deal was, but obviously if you add Alan Shearer to the United squad it would make a huge difference in terms of what the player was,” Chadwick told CaughtOffside.

“But without being disrespectful to probably the best striker in Premier League history, the club did also have some very good strikers there at the time. So in terms of what the squad could’ve achieved with Alan Shearer … I’m not sure they under-achieved in that time anyway

“Shearer would’ve been a huge addition to that team but it’s more of a question for Shearer who potentially could’ve won a huge amount of trophies, but he went to play for his boyhood team, the club that he loved, so it’s a tough question.”
