Man United transfers: Louis van Gaal needs world-class signings, says Harry Redknapp
Harry Redknapp says Louis van Gaal needs players like Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez to turn around Man United
Harry Redknapp says Louis van Gaal needs to sign world-class players to reverse Manchester United’s stuttering form.
The Red Devils have failed to score in their last three games in all competitions as United captain Wayne Rooney continues to struggle up front.
Van Gaal was linked with a surprise move for Neymar in the summer transfer window, whilst Gareth Bale has been linked with a £100m move to Old Trafford.
While Redknapp believes a top-class players could revive United, but the former Tottenham manager doubts the Red Devils are capable of signing the likes of Neymar or Bale.
“You would have to go out and sign a Gareth Bale, Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez or Neymar to turn this United team around and those players simply are not available,” Redknapp told Daily Telegraph.
United are in fourth place and four points behind leaders Manchester City and Arsenal.
The Red Devils have played out goalless draws with the Citizens and Crystal Palace in their last two games.
The 20-time English champions face CSKA Moscow in the Champions League group stage at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
