Man Utd told how many transfers they need to challenge Liverpool and Man City for title | Football | Sport

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to spend heavily to complete his squad overhaul this summer and former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich reckons they are just a couple of signings away from challenging Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the table.

United are fifth in the Premier League table, three points outside of the Champions League places with nine games to go.

Qualification into Europe’s elite competition will boost this summer’s transfer warchest and make the club more appealing to world class talent.

Solskjaer is hoping to tempt the likes of Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish and Harry Kane to Old Trafford.

And Bosnich reckons if the Red Devils can land two of their targets then they will be able to challenge Liverpool and City for the title next next season.

“They are definitely on the upward trajectory,” Bosnich told Sky Sports News.

“There have been some difficult times two or three months ago but one thing that is in very short supply nowadays is patience.

“I keep reciting the patience showed to Sir Alex Ferguson way back when… you can tell with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the direction he wants to go.

“They were on a tremendous run before this break and they only need a couple more players.

“For the starting XI and for the squad, depending on who leaves, they may need a couple of world class starters will ensure Manchester United will be challenging for the title sooner rather than later.”

“To get anywhere near where they want to be then they need three, possibly four, big signings.

“I understand the talk of Jadon Sancho, I understand the talk of Harry Kane and I certainly understand the talk of Jack Grealish.

“Those three are exactly the types they need if they are to compete at the top again.”
