Man Utd told to splash money this summer to win titles

Manchester United legendary defender Gary Neville has urged his former club to spend around £170m after the qualification for the Champions League.

Solskjaer achieved his aim of guiding the Red Devils back into UEFA’s top competition with Sunday’s 2-0 victory over top-four rivals Leicester City.

The 20-times English champions looked fatigued in the closing stages of the current campaign, however, with Norwegian manager reluctant to deviate away from his preferred starting lineup.

Neville believes that a significant upgrade on the current team is required if the Red Devils are ready to challenge silverware for the next season.

“They were absolutely done in with 20 minutes to go and that just demonstrates that they need more players in the squad,” he told Sky Sports News.

“The last time United finished in the top three they spent £170m under Jose Mourinho that summer and obviously didn’t invest it as wisely as they have this last year.

“I think United need to invest that money again but do it correctly this time to get anywhere need Liverpool and [Manchester] City. That squad needs improving.”

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is rumoured to be the Red Devils top transfer target for the summer window, while Aston Villa’s skipper Jack Grealish also on top of Solskjaer’s radar.
