Harry Redknapp: I don’t see Man United winning the league

Harry Redknapp feels that Manchester United will not be genuine title contenders next season

Harry Redknapp does not expect Manchester United to be able to win the Premier League during Louis van Gaal’s second season in charge at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are looking to mount a serious title challenge next season after they ended up in fourth place in the Premier League table last term.

Van Gaal has already moved to bolster his United squad during the summer transfer window, snapping up Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven last month, with the Netherlands international signing a four-year contract at Old Trafford.

United have been linked with a host of other players in recent weeks, including Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo, as the transfer speculation gathers pace.

Former Tottenham and QPR boss Redknapp, however, feels that United are unlikely to be able to win the title next season after they “sneaked” to a top-four finish last term.

Speaking in an interview with FourFourTwo, Redknapp said: “Finishing fourth is not a success for Manchester United.

“They’re a team who won the league under Fergie so they’re going to look to come back and win the league next year, they’re going to want to be up there challenging.

“They spent a fortune last year and they just sneaked into fourth really so they need to improve this year, but I don’t see them winning the league this year.”
