Manchester United title winner, Dimitar Berbatov, has said they’re Premier League contenders this season.
The signings of Raphael Varane at centre-back and Jadon Sancho out wide, for a combined £115m, should fix two long-standing weak areas in the United XI for the new campaign.
“Manchester United are in a strong position to challenge for the title, especially after the signings they’ve made this summer,” the former striker told Betfair.
“I am very happy that they are bringing in Raphael Varane from Real Madrid. He is a World Cup and Champions League winner, he has a winning mentality and he has played with the best over the years.
“So, he is a great signing and I am looking forward to seeing how he is going to settle into the team and compliment Harry Maguire.
“Jadon Sancho is already good friends with the England players in United’s squad, which is a great thing to have when you go into a new team. Hopefully, this is going to help him settle quickly.
“We already know about his quality, but there’s still plenty of room for him to grow and hopefully at United, one of the biggest clubs in the world, he can fulfil his potential. I’m sure he is also going to push the other forwards to perform better too.”
