Manchester United media round-up: Neville suggests three positions which need improving

Old Trafford 2

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester United.

Gary Neville has been quoted by ESPN naming the positions he feels Manchester United need to improve this summer.

The United legend has praised the way the side have turned things around under Louis van Gaal in recent weeks to establish themselves as a top four team.

The main aim for United this season was to secure a Champions League place for the next campaign and they seem likely to achieve that.

“They need to continue to improve in two or three positions: a central defender, a midfielder and a winger,” said Neville.

The Metro has claimed that Manchester United have already targeted the three players they want to sign this summer.

The paper suggests that defenders Mats Hummels and Nathaniel Clyne, along with midfielder Memphis Depay are the club’s main targets.

The paper suggests that fees around the £70 million mark would be required to get the transfers sewn up.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has been quoted by the Irish Examiner explaining his approach to leading the club.

Rooney joins a long list of great Manchester United captains, but insists that he has to try and be his own person.

He has been an inspirational figure for the club this season, with the paper claiming that he’s conducted a number of intense pre-match team talks.

“There are different styles and different ways other people have done it. But I have to be my own person and do what I feel is the best way for me to captain the team. That is all I try to do,” he said.
