Quinton Fortune is convinced that Manchester United will be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils are currently gearing up for their second season under Jose Mourinho as they look to improve their form in the top flight this term.

Manchester United’s form in the Premier League left a lot to be desired last season as the Red Devils ended up in sixth place in the table in Mourinho’s first campaign at the club.

The Red Devils did manage to offset that disappointment by winning both the Europa League and EFL Cup to end Mourinho’s debut season on a high note.

However, former Manchester United star Fortune is backing the Red Devils to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League crown in Mourinho’s second season.

Speaking to Manchester United’s website, Fortune said: “I hope the team agree that objective is to win the Premier League. We have definitely got the team to do that.”

The Red Devils are currently preparing to take on Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup on Tuesday night, before turning their attentions towards their Premier League opener against West Ham United at Old Trafford next weekend.

Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired back in 2013.
