Bryan Robson makes bold prediction about Man United this season

Bryan Robson is certain that Manchester United will challenge for the Premier League title this season

Bryan Robson is convinced that Manchester United will challenge for the Premier League title under Jose Mourinho this season.

The Red Devils are currently gearing up for their first campaign under the Portuguese coach following his appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.

Mourinho has been very busy in the summer transfer window, bringing in Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba to bolster his squad.

United won their first piece of silverware under Mourinho on Sunday as they beat Leicester City to lift the Community Shield at Wembley.

And Red Devils legend Robson is certain that United will be one of the main contenders for the title this season, despite their fifth-placed finish last term.

Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Robson said: “Yes [United are one of the favourites for the title].

“When you add the new signings to the players we already had at the club – the youngsters like Martial and Rashford should improve again this season and the top-class international players – it looks a nicely balanced squad at this moment in time.

“Everyone should be quite excited going into the season.”
