Manchester United are short of 5 new players from becoming a complete team, states Gary Neville.

He told Sky Sports, “It’s been a really good month for Manchester United, barring the Bournemouth defeat. That game was frustrating and took us back a few steps but generally it’s been a better month than the one before.

“You can see some real excitement with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Daniel James, there’s something to work on there. Defensively, with Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, there’s something to work on there too. The young boy Brandon Williams gives me a great deal of hope.”

Adding on his own podcast, Neville said: “Look, Manchester United need four or five players with real quality and experience. They really need another centre-back, they need a left-back, and a couple of central midfielders and a striker or a forward.

“That’s not going to change and won’t change entirely even after January. But there’s something there.”

Manchester United went past Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 last weekend, recording their fifth win in the last six games. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to have steadied the ship for now but he desperately needs more depth to tackle the demands of Premier League and European football.

Reports claim he will be handed a huge treasure chest to make additions in the January window. James Maddison and Christian Eriksen seem to be on top of the manager’s wishlist.
