Paul Ince believes Manchester United need two more signings to launch a serious bid for the Premier League title.

The Red Devils will start the 2017-18 Premier League campaign with a home clash against West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season but managed to end their first campaign under Jose Mourinho on a positive note.

The Red Devils were 2-0 winners against Dutch side Ajax in the Europa League final to secure a spot in the Champions League this term.

Manchester United have signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic in an attempt to improve their squad ahead of a return to Europe’s top tier.

Mourinho has been linked with a number of wide players in recent weeks amid talk of a potential move to sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic or Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.

Former Manchester United captain Ince believes the Reds Devils need two more additions to mount a sustained title challenge this season.

“I still think they’re missing one or two players to really nail on a title chase,” Ince wrote in his Paddy Power column.

“Mourinho will definitely want a couple more in – but it isn’t going to be Gareth Bale, let’s be realistic. He wants to stay at Real Madrid, so any talk about him coming is pointless.”

Manchester United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League in their first season under former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
