Man Utd legend Neville: Solskjaer needs three or four signings like Fernandes

Manchester United legend Gary Neville says the club need 'three or four' signings like Bruno Fernandes.

The Portugal international grabbed a brace in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Brighton, continuing his incredible run since joining the club in January.

But Neville thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's needs to add more players of Fernandes' quality.

"This team is a lot more likeable than the one which was here two years ago when you thought Manchester United's recruitment had lost direction," he told Sky Sports.

"But I would urge some caution. Manchester United are sixth in the Premier League, they have a squad which is improving with young players.

"But there is still some work to be done in the transfer market to get this team to a title-winning team – which has to be Manchester United's ambition.

"There is more needed and a lot more needed: three or four players of high quality of the Bruno Fernandes type to get them to the point where they can challenge."
