Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants five more signings before he considers his squad ready to compete for the top honours in EPL and Champions League. The depth in squad is a notable problem for the club in recent weeks despite the emergence of a strong starting XI. They have failed to call on established performers from the bench when the need arises.
The Red Devils recently became the first team in Premier League history to win four consecutive games by a margin of three or more goals following comfortable victories over Sheffield United, Bournemouth, Brighton and Aston Villa. But recently the players have looked tired out. United were found waning in disappointing performances against Southampton, Crystal Palace, Chelsea and West Ham.
According to the daily The Daily Telegraph former striker has concluded with assistant manager Mike Phelan that the squad they inherited ultimately needed nine new signings.
The club has been linked with a host of top names including Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish, James Madison and Kaliodou Koulibaly.
Manchester United will qualify for Europe premier club competition should they avoid defeat against their direct rival on the last day of the EPL.
