Gary Neville reveals how many signings Man Utd need to compete with Liverpool and Man City | Football | Sport


Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League last season and during the summer transfer window only managed to add three players to their squad.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw right-back Aaron Wan-Bisaka, winger Daniel James and centre-back Harry Maguire make the switch to Old Trafford.

Gary Neville, who made 602 appearances for United and won eight Premier Leagues, two Champions Leagues, three FA Cups and two League Cups during his time with the Red Devils, still thinks the team needs to find a spine if they are to be successful.

However, the 44-year-old pundit believes if United can bring in the right three players, then Solskjaer wouldn’t be far off having the squad he needs to succeed.

Manchester United, somehow, have got to find a spine,” Neville said on Sky Sports Monday Night Football.

“Look at Liverpool. Fabinho, Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino, unbelievable players, same with Manchester City’s spine.

“My thing at the moment is how do Manchester United recruit, in the next 12 to 18 months, a spine that will help United’s younger players?

“Years ago, United’s spine were players like Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister, Peter Schmeichel, Roy Keane, Andy Cole, Eric Cantona.

“The spine of that team is immense. The problem with United’s team now, is not the younger players on the pitch.

“The spine of the team is Victor Lindelof, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Ashley Young and David de Gea.

“Who knows what the likes of Andreas Pereira, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James will become, they need a spine.

“If Manchester United get the right three players in amongst that squad, they won’t be far off. It can be done.”

Although United have only won two of their opening five Premier League games they are currently fourth in the table, as several teams have made an indifferent start to the season.

Last weekend United secured a much needed 1-0 win over Leicester thanks to a penalty from Marcus Rashford and this Thursday host Kazakhstan side Astana in their first Europa League group game.

After that Solskjaer then faces a trip to he capital to take on West Ham on Sunday, before hosting Rochdale in the League Cup on Wednesday.
