Redknapp brought former United defender Rio Ferdinand to the club this week and said that even though there is a new ave of fantastic players arriving at Old Trafford this summer it still won’t be enough for the Dutchman to get the side back on track and claim the big prize.
“Van Gaal’s got a good track record but they need players,” he said.
“He needs to bring four or five players in at least to get them back to where they were under Alex [Ferguson], where they were winning championships because they look well short of that at the moment.
“Certainly at this stage you wouldn’t want to bet on them winning the league next year. I wouldn’t see them winning it next year unless he suddenly pull three or four fantastic players out of the hat.”
Redknapp also highlighted the strength of United’s title rivals as another reason as to why United will fall short in the quest for domestic supremacy.
“I wouldn’t see them being as strong as Chelsea or Man City,” he added. “I think Arsenal have made a great signing [in Alexis Sanchez] so they could get a lot closer next year.
“It’s quite open. I would love to see Liverpool have another great season but they’ve lost an incredible player [Luis Suarez], he’s irreplaceable really.”
