Man Utd’s target is a top-four finish, says Paul Scholes

Paul Scholes says that Manchester United’s target this season should be securing a top-four finish – not the Premier League title.

The Red Devils are currently without a win in the Premier League after three games under new manager Louis van Gaal following a stuttering start.

I don’t think the league title is realistic but Champions League football is the aim

Paul Scholes

But with United having brought in Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao and Daley Blind in the latter stages of the transfer window, Scholes feels that Champions League qualification is now within reach.

“When I watched Radamel Falcao play for Porto, Atletico Madrid and Monaco I saw a striker with excellent movement and a goalscoring record that is simply out of this world.

“At United, on loan for this season initially, Falcao creates competition in United’s forward line.

“There is no way that Louis van Gaal can play Rooney, Robin van Persie and Falcao together. It will have to be two from three and which two it is hard to say as yet.

“I don’t think the league title is realistic but Champions League football is the aim. Now it is over to Van Gaal to shape the team.”
