Newcastle legend Keegan: Man Utd summer signings lack wow factor

Newcastle United legend Kevin Keegan wonders how Manchester United and Manchester City will handle the coming season.

Keegan has doubts about both teams over their title challenge.

He told the Mirror: "Manchester United won the title in a season where they did not play fantastic, ­especially away from home, and it will be ­interesting to see if the competition have sussed out Chicharito, how much they miss Paul Scholes and how much Ryan Giggs has left in the tank.

"Sir Alex Ferguson has made some good signings, but with respect to Ashley Young and Phil Jones, none of ­United's buys so far have had that 'wow' factor.

"The noisy ­neighbours at Manchester City are only going to get noisier because the finance is not going to stop - the only questions are whether Roberto Mancini can handle all those egos and whether City have a real leader in their dressing room, because you can't win the title without one."
