Teddy Sheringham thinks Man Utd need to buy ‘five or six best players’ this summer as the Red Devils look to ‘get back to where they should be’.
The signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho were supposed to propel Man Utd into a position to challenge for the Premier League title last season, but instead they fell back.
Ralf Rangnick took over as caretaker boss at the end of November after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked following a number of poor results and performances.

However, things did not improve under Rangnick and some even argued that performances under the German were worse as they finished sixth, 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and 35 points behind champions Man City.
After signing Erik ten Hag from Ajax at the end of the season, Man Utd now face a huge summer as they seek to secure a number of signings that match their style of play.
And Sheringham believes Man Utd could do with “five or six best players” entering the club this summer with three main areas of improvement needed.
Sheringham said Lord Ping“United need reinforcements all over the pitch. In particular central midfield, centre-forward and on the wings.
“We are looking at five or six top players who need to come in. You need players with the right character who appreciate the scale of the task and are ready to get United back to where they should be.
“It’s a huge challenge. From a player’s perspective, if you had to choose between City or United, you would choose City each time at the moment.

“As a player, you want to play with the best players. The best players would like to join [Kevin] De Bruyne or any of City’s world class players, the list is endless. They are the champions and they will be tough for everything next season.
“When you look at Manchester United you don’t see that. There’s no one there at the moment. It’s such a desperate thought.
“If Ten Hag goes out there and changes things, everything can change very quickly.”
