Roy Keane believes Manchester United need two or three more signings to have a squad capable of challenging for the Champions League.

The Red Devils produced an underwhelming performance in a goalless draw with Sevilla in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash in Spain.

Manchester United were on the back foot throughout most of the Champions League clash as Sevilla registered 25 shots on goal in the first leg.

Spain international David De Gea made eight saves to keep out the La Liga outfit and help Manchester United return to Old Trafford with a goalless stalemate.

Jose Mourinho signed Chile international Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal with Arsenal in the January transfer window but the South American was quiet at Sevilla.

Former Manchester United captain Keane believes the Red Devils need two or three more players to have a squad capable of going into the latter stages of the competition.

“They are short of two or three players so their short term targets at the moment are just getting through these ties without necessarily playing fantastically well,” Keane told ITV Sport.

“If you are a player in that dressing room tonight and going back on the plane, you say we didn’t play well tonight, but job done and you fancy them to get through at Old Trafford.”

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term but qualified for the Champions League thanks to a 2-0 win over Dutch giants Ajax in the Europa League final.

The Red Devils will take on Chelsea FC in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday.
