Manchester United have turned their season around after having a poor start to the campaign. Their season for all intents and purposes looked over in November when the club parted ways with Jose Mourinho and appointed former striker Ole Gunnar Solksjaer on an interim basis.
However, the Norwegian has revived the Red Devils season as they have given themselves a chance of finishing in the top 4, and have qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Solksjaer now looks favourite to get the job full time after steering the club through a tough time. It is expected that the club will invest a lot of money into the team in the summer in an effort to overhaul the squad.
Former Man Utd defender Phil Neville has suggested a list of 5 players that he feels United should buy in the summer, and the list contains former Tottenham attacker Gareth Bale as well as Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier.
The other three in the list are Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho, Juventus’ Joao Cancelo and Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.
Speaking about his list, Neville told Premier League Today (via Sky Sports), “Gareth Bale is ready-made. Ole has said he wants to buy a hungry player. I think [Jadon] Sancho is that hungry player. But Bale has won Champions Leagues and played at the top level.
“I don’t think wages are an issue at Manchester United. You are talking guaranteed quality who can play across the front line.”
On Dier, Neville said, “Eric Dier as the holding midfield player and Philippe Coutinho, who there has been a bit of speculation about.
“You have to have British players in a title-winning team. [Ander] Herrera, Fred and [Scott] McTominay are part of the squad. [Nemanja] Matic, this season, has had a dip.”
