And United new-boy Schneiderlin is confident that United will be able to challenge for silverware on all fronts next season following his switch to Old Trafford.

Schneiderlin told a news conference in the United States on Wednesday: “It’s a must for the club to be in the top four and winning the title is very important.

“With the players we have in the team you see there is a lot of quality. We are ready to do our best and then mix it with the Champions League.
