Manchester United need "three or four" signings in order to challenge - Neville

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville believes they need to add depth to their squad before they can contend for the Premier League title again.

United have the chance to strengthen their chances of qualifying for next season's Champions League by beating West Ham at Old Trafford this evening, where a victory would see the Red Devils move up to third.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will kick off the game 31-points behind champions Liverpool, and Neville was asked on Sky Sports' coverage whether his old side can close the gap next term.

“I don’t think this Manchester United team at this moment can challenge for the title next season," the former England defender said. "It needs more additions and more of the right additions.

“To be fair to Ole, 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.

“My concern isn’t really for the front three or the midfield three, it’s the depth and the drop that you have beneath that talent.

“When I say that Manchester United need a centre-forward, that’s not me saying they should sell Anthony Martial.

“They need a centre-forward because Manchester United should have two or three great centre-forwards. They should have two or three great wingers. Not just one in each position.”
