Scholes feels Man Utd years away from being title contender

Manchester United icon Paul Scholes feels the club is some years away from being a title contender.

United's winless run extended to three games on Saturday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Southampton at St. Mary's.

"On that showing today you have to feel there is a good three or four transfer windows before they get to where they want to be," Scholes told Premier League Productions.

"United are United. I think you almost have to write United off for the next two years, this team.

"I think until Ole Gunnar has cleared everything he wants out, there's four or five transfer windows, United are going to be behind Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham."
