Manchester United legend Gary Neville has identified the areas of the squad he thinks Manchester United should be looking to add to in the summer transfer window.

“I think, to be honest with you, I don’t know which area needs strengthening fully until we know which players the new manager likes,” Gary Neville said.

“We know the areas they absolutely need to actually strengthen,” he added. “Central midfield is an absolute necessity. An absolute necessity. Manchester United need midfield players.

“They also need a centre-forward. I know Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to stay and he’s an absolutely brilliant performer, but they need a centre-forward. Centre-forward is a must.

“I think there’ll need to be a wide player, just to beef up the squad, and I think full-backs are absolutely critical in the modern game.

“[There are] four full-backs there, it’ll be interesting to see which two, three or four of those are liked.”
