Scholes speaks on Man United’s title chances, predicts Champions League clash against Barca


Manchester United’s ex-midfielder, Paul Scholes, has said that he does not think the club will be on the challenge for the Premier League title next season.

According to Scholes, United have not given any indication they could challenge for the title.

Red Devil’s manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently not finding life easy as United boss, just a few weeks after being confirmed as the club’s permanent boss.

United recorded a narrow 2-1 victory over West Ham on Saturday to boost their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League, but the former England midfielder said the club would need a dramatic squad overhaul in the summer to become title challengers under Solskjaer.

“It feels like you almost need a full rebuild again,” Scholes said on BT Sport.

“A lot of people expect United to challenge for league next year and I can’t see it.

“Liverpool showed signs last year they could challenge.

“United, there’s nothing telling me they’ll challenge next season.

“Give it £200million and give Ole a summer window, but Ole will have to improve this squad massively.”

United will travel to Spain on Tuesday to take on Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League quarter final.

They need to score at least two goals to progress past Barcelona into the Champions League semi-finals.
