Owen Hargreaves is expecting to see Manchester United add some quality players in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils are bound to be linked with a host of Europe’s top stars as they prepare for Jose Mourinho’s second season in charge at the club.

Manchester United will be hoping to use the lure of Champions League football to attract the top talent to Old Trafford this summer as they bid to qualify by winning the Europa League this season.

Mourinho was one of the Premier League’s biggest spending managers last summer as he brought in Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in deals worth over £150m.

And former Manchester United midfielder Hargreaves is expecting to see the Red Devils splash the cash once again this summer.

Speaking to BT Sport, Hargreaves said: “United are in transition and it’s not going to be one season where they figure it all out, it’s going to take time.

“With time, he will get there. He’s had two transfer windows and he’ll get another one this summer and they’ll add some terrific players.

“United will be a threat to anyone because Mourinho is a serial winner.”
