Paul Scholes doesn’t think Manchester United will be “where they want to be” for another “three or four transfer windows” after their draw 1-1 at Southampton.

United have an outstanding record at St Mary’s and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men looked on course for a first away win since their jaw-dropping Champions League triumph at Paris St Germain.

But the visitors were unable to build on Daniel James’ beautiful early strike and Jan Vestergaard levelled after the break, with Saints holding on for a draw despite Kevin Danso’s sending-off leaving them under the cosh.

“On that showing today you have to feel there is a good three or four transfer windows before they get to where they want to be,” Scholes told Premier League Productions.

“United are United. I think you almost have to write United off for the next two years, this team. I think until Ole Gunnar has cleared everything he wants out, there’s four or five transfer windows, United are going to be behind Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham.”
