Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eyeing Premier League title glory next season.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes he needs just two or three players in order to challenge for the Premier League title, according to reports. The Norwegian has seen his side impress of late, with the Red Devils unbeaten in their last 11 matches across all competitions.
It’s been a difficult campaign for Solskjaer and Manchester United this season, with the Red Devils failing to sparkle like they did when Sir Alex Ferguson ruled the roost.
But, in recent weeks, the club appear to have turned a corner.
United are unbeaten in their last 11 matches across all competitions and have secured recent big results against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and LASK.
The club’s improved form has prompted some to tip them for Premier League title glory next season.
Yet Unibet claim Solskjaer believes he requires just two or three signings in order for United to challenge the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City for the prize.

No names are mentioned.
But United have been linked with various players in numerous positions ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils are big admirers of Jadon Sancho, who has been in stunning form for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season.
The England international has scored 14 league goals and registered 15 assists from just 23 matches so far.
United know that they face a fight to land Sancho, who is also on the transfer radars of Chelsea, PSG and Liverpool.

What Man Utd owners the Glazers think about potential £200m Old Trafford upgrade
But they’re optimistic they can fend off competition from their rivals in order to bring the 19-year-old to Old Trafford.
United have seen their defence impress amid their unbeaten run with Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire both rediscovering their best form.
But that might not stop them from going for Napoli bulldozer Kalidou Koulibaly.
Solskjaer rates the Senegal international, despite the centre-back’s performances in Serie A this season leaving much to be desired.
The Norwegian believes Koulibaly is one of the best defenders in world football alongside Maguire and Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk.
And United making a move for the 29-year-old this summer is something that currently can’t be ruled out.
In midfield, United have seen Bruno Fernandes flourish.
The 25-year-old joined from Sporting Lisbon in January and has scored three goals since his arrival.
But United are still thought to be keen on snapping up Jack Grealish, who has caught the eye with his performances for Aston Villa this season.
