Man United aren’t ready to challenge for title, admits Bryan Robson
Manchester United legend Bryan Robson believes the Red Devils should be aiming for a top-four finish
Manchester United should be aiming for a top-four finish this season, according to Bryan Robson.
The Red Devils have strengthened their squad in the summer transfer window after signing Angel di Maria in a British-record £59.7m.
I don’t think they’re quite ready to challenge Chelsea and Manchester City for the Premier League title
On deadline day, Louis van Gaal snapped up compatriot Daley Blind in a £14m deal from Ajax before signing Radamel Falcao on loan.
The 20-time English champions are still searching for their first Premier League win under new manager Van Gaal.
And former United captain Robson believes his old side should be looking to challenge for a top-four title as opposed to the title.
“When you have the quality of players Manchester United have got now, a top four spot and Champions League football next season has to be their aim,” Robson told talkSPORT.
“I don’t think they’re quite ready to challenge Chelsea and Manchester City for the Premier League title though.”
Robson won two Premier League titles during a 12-year career at United.
