Ed Woodward told four Man Utd signings needed to win Premier League

Manchester United have made an underwhelming start to the season, and sit down in 14th place in the Premier League. Ahead of the Janaury transfer window they are expected to improve the squad, and Louis Saha has given them some ideas.

United transfer chief Ed Woodward has been told that he needs to sign four new players to compete at the top again.

The Red Devils have endured an underwhelming start to the season, and sit down in 14th place in the Premier League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side managed to sneak into the top four at the end of the last term to compete in the Champions League.

But they appear to be off the pace for for the title again this season.

And ex-United striker Louis Saha insists Woodward needs to persuade the Glazers to get their chequebook out and sign more top players like Bruno Fernandes, who has had a huge impact since joining in January.

He told Stadium Astro: “The focus is on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but you also have to look at the recruitment.

“Some new signings like Fred, you can see the quality but he’s not going to make the difference.

“The signing of [Bruno] Fernandes, you need four of them. You need four of them to actually compete and this is what is missing.

“You need to know the mentality of new players. I want players there who want to win the Champions League and win big trophies. This is what is required here.”

United won’t be in action again until they host West Brom on November 21 after the international break.

Solskjaer and United captain Harry Maguire were both critical of the lack of time they were given to prepare for Saturday’s win over Everton.

Having played in Turkey on Wednesday night, Maguire said of the schedule: “It is strange, you have all those slots and the availability to play the game against Everton, who I am sure would have been happy to play whenever.

“To play in Istanbul on Wednesday, have a five-hour flight and then to play first thing Saturday morning, it is tough.”
