Former United striker calls for more signings.
Former Manchester United striker Andrew Cole believes the club need three more signings to help fire them back to the top of the Premier League next season, according to the Daily Express.
The 42-year-old, who played for United between 1994 and 2002, scoring 121 goals for the club, is impressed by Louis van Gaal’s work in the transfer market so far, which has seen the club spend £60m on Southampton youngster Luke Shaw and Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.
Despite finishing in a disastrous seventh place in 2013/14, Cole feels that the injection of some new blood as well as the influence of new manager van Gaal can fire the Red Devils right back to the top of the pile in England again.
When asked how many signings United needed in total, Cole said: “Four or five. Get those four or five in and I think they will win it.
“Why not? There’s a new manager in place, United will have a right go in the transfer market and however you look at it; Man City won the league last season but the season before United won it by 11 points. What does that say?”
Big names such as Toni Kroos of Bayern Munich and Arturo Vidal of Juventus have been linked with moves to Old Trafford in recent times, but it remains to be seen which areas van Gaal will prioritise next as he looks to make major improvements on the squad that struggled so badly under David Moyes this season.
