Gary Neville has backed Manchester United to win the Premier League - just not this season.
‘I think Van Gaal will win the league here inside three years’, said ex-England international Neville. ‘I think United will win the league inside the next three years, but I don’t think it will happen in his first season’.
Neville argument was that United will spend on top-class players and add to what they already have, which will make Louis van Gaal’s team very strong.
The 39-year-old’s argument is a valid one. United do have some superb players, and they are likely to make defensive and midfield signings in the next transfer windows.
The main objective for United this season is to finish in the top four. Once they have done that, then England’s biggest club can start plotting winning the Premier League title.
