Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United need two or three more signings to make the leap from top four hopefuls to Premier League title challengers.
The United legend has lauded the job done by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, particularly while recruiting players like Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire. But following their 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace, Giggs urged United to make more moves in the transfer market if they’re to catch Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the league.
“Oh definitely I still think we’re off [both] Manchester City and Liverpool,” Giggs told Premier League Productions. “I still think two or three players [are needed].
“Ole has done really well in the two transfer windows he’s had. Characters have come in. Fernandes looks a leader, he looks like a character. Harry Maguire is captain.
“So it’s not just about players, it’s about having that culture and characters that can improve – not just the starting XI – but the squad and the overall feeling of the club. They’re moving in the right direction but I still believe they need three players.”
Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial secured another victory for United at Selhurst Park as they continued their surge towards the top four.
United are gunning for Champions League qualification either through the league or by winning the Europa League, while they are also in the FA Cup latter stages and face Chelsea in the semi-finals on Sunday, hoping to keep alive their hopes of winning two trophies under Solskjaer this season.
