Hargreaves names three signings Man Utd need to compete for PL

Wilfried Ndidi Leicester City

Owen Hargreaves has identified the players that Manchester United need if they are to compete for the Premier League title soon.

The Red Devils are only three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and eight points off third-placed Leicester City – but they are 37 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool.

And Hargreaves reckons a winger, a defensive midfielder and a left-sided centre-back should be Man Utd‘s priority for the summer transfer window if they are to try and compete next season.

OPINION: What will happen to Dean Henderson this summer?

“It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality,” Hargreaves told Premier League productions.

“If you can have a Jadon Sancho – they need a right winger – Sancho playing off the right hand would make a huge difference.


“Bellingham is 16 or 17, he’s going to be a super player but you need someone right now.

“I think they need an [Wilfried] Ndidi type, a defensive sitter. If you have Pogba and Fernandes then I think you need a defensive one there.

“I think they also need a left-sided centre-back.

“They have Lindelof, Maguire, Bailly but a left-sided centre-back would make a big difference.”

When asked about the possibility of United siging a striker in the summer, Hargreaves added: “Harry Kane is the dream but they don’t desperately need him”
