Gary Neville dismisses chances for Manchester United winning the league next season, while Ole Solskjaer is mapping a squad rebuild.
Manchester United almost after a year is picking results in the Premier League and almost after 7 years looking like a potential contender for next season’s Premier League.
Although, a lot is to improved in the squad, before they match the squad quality of their rivals. So far, everything looks to be promising with the current setup of the club.
The same thoughts are shared by Gary Neville, who dismissed any chances of title contention by his former club, and believes his old club need ‘three of four’ new signings to challenge at the top of the table.
Gary Neville – “United are not on Liverpool’s level yet”
He told Sky Sports: “I don’t think this Manchester United team at this moment can challenge for the title next season. It needs more additions and more of the right additions.”
“To be fair to Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer], in the time he has been at the club, I think the players he has brought in have improved his team enormously.
“I think that he needs three or four more of those as a minimum before he can even think about getting up into third or second place,” he said.
While believing United are not on Liverpool’s level yet, Neville does not think Jurgen Klopp’s side will dominate the Premier League in years to come. He added: “No, I’m not [concerned].
“What would concern me about Liverpool for a long period would be if they were bought out by a super-rich owner, who invested at the level of Manchester City or Manchester United.
“Liverpool still, in their transfer business, are still quite modest compared to the other clubs. Their owners just don’t have the money of a Manchester City, or the spending power of a Manchester United or a Chelsea.”
