Speaking to BT Sport, former Liverpool star Steve McManaman has stated his belief that Manchester United are not strong enough to win the Premier League title during the upcoming campaign despite their summer splurge.

Manchester United have certainly made a huge impact in the transfer market this summer as new manager Jose Mourinho has brought in the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and recently Paul Pogba, for a world record fee of around £89 million.

Given the arrival of such quality players as well as the presence of a serial winner like Mourinho in charge, many believe that United will be able to go on and win the Premier League title during the upcoming campaign.

However, former Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman is still not convinced by the star studded United side and has stated his belief that the Red Devils are not strong enough to claim the title this season.

Speaking to BT Sport, McManaman stated, "He's always wanted Pogba. The signing of Jose gives them extra steel, a bit of spice.

"I still personally don't think they're strong enough to win the league. I think other teams have strengthened and they have to find 10 points somewhere from the other sides above them and they aren't good enough.

"Some players will be alright - it will be a big year for Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. I don't know if Ibrahimovic will be able to do it for the full season."

Manchester United open their Premier League campaign with a clash against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday and it will be interesting to see how the Red Devils will be able to perform on the day.
