Sherwood: Man Utd three signings short of being title challenger

Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood believes Manchester United are three signings short of being a title challenger.

Sherwood says United need to bring in Jack Grealish, a striker in the mould of Harry Kane and another centre-half if they wish to stand toe-to-toe with Liverpool and Manchester City.

"I look at that squad now and I think they're two or three players short of challenging for the title,' Sherwood told Premier League Productions.

"I think they need another striker, I think they need Jack Grealish, who is a brilliant player to have when teams sit back against them like Tottenham did the other evening where he can occupy the tight areas and create something.

"I think they need another centre-back as cover. If they can get that and they have the money to be able to go out and buy them sort of players to attract them to the biggest club in the world then I think they'll be real challengers. I think Ole's done a brilliant building job."
