Former defender Phil Neville believes that his former side Manchester United may need to spend another £100 million on players before they can compete for the English Premier League title.
The Red Devils shockingly lost 5-3 away at Leicester City, but Neville says he “wasn’t surprised with the result”.
“I know United have spent £150m,” Neville told BBC Radio 5 live.
“I think there’s another two transfer windows of similar amounts of money needed – maybe £100m – before they can even think about winning the title.”
The Old Trafford club’s new manager Louis van Gaal spent over £150 million in the summer to sign midfielders Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind, defenders Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw, while striker Radamel Falcao joined for a £6 million loan fee.
Neville told BBC Radio 5 live “there are still key positions in the team that need filling”.
“I think the centre-back position is obviously the key area.”
“Holding midfield or centre-midfield needs addressing [too].”
Neville clarified on Twitterthat he was referring to a total spend of £100 million across the two windows.
