Jamie Carragher thinks Man Utd are potentially one signing away from challenging Liverpool and Man City for the Premier League title.
The Red Devils made huge progress in the second half of last season as they shot up the table to finish in third position, thanks in part to the January arrival of Bruno Fernandes.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already drafted in Donny van de Beek from Ajax in a deal worth £40m, while they have been consistently linked with Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

And Carragher thinks the potential signing of Sancho or another “one or two” players could see Man Utd challenge for the title.
Carragher told the Sunday Times: “Roy Keane shot me down last year on Sky Sports when we were speaking about Manchester United and I said: ‘They are never as bad as you think.’
“I have always thought that one or two little things can turn it — and, for me, signing Bruno Fernandes in January has completely changed United.
“That is only one signing. He came in and suddenly United were a totally different team. That’s how close it is. It could be that Jadon Sancho comes in and then United are challenging for the title. They are not as far away as people think. One or two more signings could make the difference.”
