Harry Redknapp comments on Manchester United’s chances of winning the Premier League title this season.

Former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United manager Harry Redknapp has suggested on Kicca.com that Manchester United must sign a striker this summer.

Redknapp believes that recruiting a top striker will make Louis van Gaal’s side genuine contenders for the Premier League title in the upcoming 2015-16 campaign.

“If Manchester United signed a top-class striker then I think they’d be serious contenders for the title,” the 68-year-old wrote on Kicca.com.

“Wilson is very good but won’t, I imagine, be able to carry them up front next season so I reckon Van Gaal will be looking for a top striker and if he gets one then they’ve got a real chance,” added the former Queens Park Rangers boss.

Do Manchester United need to sign a striker?

United have three recognised strikers in the squad at the moment: captain Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez (who spent last season on loan at Real Madrid) and James Wilson.

Summer signing from PSV, Memphis Depay, is classed as a forward, but he is more of a winger than a striker.

With Robin van Persie sold and Rademel Falcao not signed on a permanent contract, the Red Devils do need at least one top-class striker.

The problem is that there are not too many world-class strikers available this summer, which means that United may have to settle for a ‘B category’ player.
