“New transfers aren’t all about bringing in squad players – you need to bring in those who improve your team and help bring it to where it wants to be. United have those issues at the moment, and that’s where the difficulties lie.

“The only way United can make a difference is going out and buying the best players available. There are too many average players at the club! They’re supposed to be a bunch of world-class players, yet they aren’t.

“United have a lot of international players, but a lot of them don’t start for their national teams!”
