Manchester United may need to spend another £100m on players before they can compete for the league title, says their former defender Phil Neville.

United lost 5-3 at Leicester City
on Saturday, but Neville says he
“wasn’t surprised with the
result”.
“I know United have spent
£150m,” Neville told BBC Radio 5
live.
“I think there’s another two
transfer windows of similar
amounts of money needed –
maybe £100m – before they can
even think about winning the
title.”
MOTD2 pundit and former
England midfielder Danny
Murphy on the 5-3 loss to
Leicester
“Manchester United’s defence
lacked leadership, experience
and quality against Leicester.
But if I criticise them, it is also
important I point out they did
not have much protection. The
balance of the team was all
wrong. We already knew
Louis van Gaal’s squad was
top-heavy with superb
attacking talent but this game
was the first time we have
seen that it does not matter
how dangerous they are
going forward if they cannot
defend.”
