Neville reveals where Manchester United need to strengthen

Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has opened up on where the Old Trafford club need to strengthen.

In recent days, United have been linked with Borussia Dortmund star, Jadon Sancho and Atletico Madrid defender, Kieran Trippier.

According to Neville, United need a central defender to partner Harry Maguire.

“They definitely need a centre-back to go with Harry Maguire. Although I think the back four has done well, I think the defence has done well but they’re at an absolute maximum where they are,” he said, MEN reports.

“I think Aaron Wan-Bissaka is improving weekly and is getting better. I think if Luke Shaw can stay fit he’s the best and always has been in terms of talent.

“With Harry Maguire they’ve got someone who is incredibly reliable and can lead the team, I just think that another centre back comes in and completes that back four.

“Up front is an issue. Over the last few years, we’ve never had a fixed right-winger, I think left’s okay with Marcus Rashford. You could argue is Mason Greenwood a right-winger?

“That’s the question is he a right winger or is he a centre forward? If he’s a centre-forward in the long term, Manchester United need a right-winger. If Mason Greenwood is a right-winger, they need a centre-forward.”

United finished second last season, but lost the Europa League final to Villarreal.
