Manchester United need "four more quality signings" says former midfielder Paul Ince.
The 53-year-old racked up more than 200 appearances for the Red Devils between 1989 and 1995 winning multiple Premier League titles, FA cups and the European Cup Winners Cup.
Known for his tireless and tenatious displays, Ince was the first black footballer to captain the England national team.
The player turned pundit has had his say on where his ex-side need to strengthen and claims, even after the capture of Borussia Dortmund wideman Jadon Sancho, Man Utd still need more additions if they are to compete for the title:
“Manchester United still need three or four more quality signings to be title contenders," said Ince speaking to Paddy Power.
"It’s great that Edinson Cavani’s signed for another year, but he won’t play every game at his age, even if he wants to – they need a centre forward. They need another centre back and a world-class central midfielder, and they must be top players.
“United’s recruitment in recent years has been poor. They spent £40million on Donny van de Beek, who’s hardly played, it doesn't make sense."

Clearly disgruntled at the way United have handled incoming signings over the past few seasons, Ince was quick to highlight his concerns over shoddy recruitment.
However, he believes the capture of Sancho might be the turning point for his old side and Ince has high hopes for the 21-year-old:
“It’s about time United got their player recruitment right. They want attacking football and signing Sancho is the excitement going forward that they’ve been longing for.”
“Jadon Sancho is heading to Manchester United, and fans should be excited. United have been coveting Sancho for a while. Look at his goals and displays for Borussia Dortmund these last two years!
“The fans know they've got an exciting player, a natural winger. He’s like Andrei Kanchelskis, a player who wants to get the ball and beat someone.
"Sancho likes to drift inside, as we have seen for England, and he’s extremely comfortable on the ball whilst scoring goals. He’s a superb acquisition.”
