United’s all times goalscorer said: “I think it will be difficult after the season they had last year. They [Manchester City] have been playing some great football.

“But I hope someone can catch them – it would be nice, so hopefully Manchester United can. I think maybe another signing or two.

“I am sure Jose (Mourinho) has been getting the team right. I know there has been a lot of talk about pre-season in the press but I am sure behind the scenes, Jose has been giving them the right amount of work.

“They have the game against Leicester on Friday so hopefully they can go one step further this year than second and try and get the title back.”

Can Manchester United challenge City this season for league title with the addition of 1 or 2 players?
