Manchester United have hit a real upturn in form across all competitions in recent weeks.

Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s side are on an 11-match unbeaten run which sees them challenging for a top-four spot, in the last-eight of the FA Cup and with one foot in the last-eight of the Europa League.

The signing of Bruno Fernandes in January has injected real creativity into the team, with the Portugal international contributing three goals and four assists to date.

More deals will be attempted in the summer, and former midfielder Owen Hargreaves has said that he feels it will take three big signings to get the club challenging for the title next term.

Hargreaves played 39 matches for Manchester United.

“It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality,’ Hargreaves told Premier League productions .

“If you can have a Jadon Sancho – they need a right winger – Sancho playing off the right hand would make a huge difference.

“Bellingham is 16 or 17, he’s going to be a super player but you need someone right now. I think they need an Ndidi type, a defensive sitter. If you have Pogba and Fernandes then I think you need a defensive one there.

“I think they also need a left-sided centre-back. They have Lindelof, Maguire, Bailly but a left-sided centre-back would make a big difference.”

Whether the club will be able to deliver these remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain is that Solskjaer’s United look in a lot healthier position now compared to a few months ago.
