Harry Redknapp feels Manchester United will not be among the contenders for the Premier League title next season.

Louis van Gaal officially took over at Old Trafford on Wednesday as the Dutchman looks to reverse the Red Devils’ ailing fortunes following last season’s seventh-place finish.

You wouldn’t want to bet on them winning the league next year

United have already signed Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw this summer but Queens Park Rangers boss Redknapp feels that their squad is still too thin for a serious title charge.

“Van Gaal’s got a good track record but they need players,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.

“He needs to bring four or five players in at least to get them back to where they were under Alex [Ferguson], where they were winning championships because they look well short of that at the moment.

“Certainly at this stage you wouldn’t want to bet on them winning the league next year. I wouldn’t see them winning it next year unless he suddenly pull three or four fantastic players out of the hat.”
