Gary Neville believes that Manchester United are poised to splash the cash on a number of signings this summer.

The Red Devils will be expected to spend big this summer after they came up short in the Premier League title race following Manchester City’s dominance of the top flight.

Manchester United have been spending big to bolster their squad in recent transfer windows since Jose Mourinho’s appointment at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016.

They are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as Mourinho looks to assemble a squad capable of challenging Manchester City this season.

And former Manchester United defender Neville reckons that the Red Devils are likely to make “three or four” big signings this summer ahead of next season.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Neville said: “I think it will be huge in numbers, I don’t think it will be huge in terms of quantity of players.

“I don’t think we will see seven or eight players leave or seven or eight players coming in.

“I think it will be three of four players leaving and three or four players coming in, which is relatively normal.

“But I think they will be big players, I think the defence needs reshaping, I think the midfield needs looking at.

“He’s got to make that gap up and that’s a big gap.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

Mourinho’s men are aiming to get back to winning ways in the top flight after the disappointment of their shock 1-0 loss to West Brom at Old Trafford last weekend.

Manchester United finished in sixth place last season and won both the Europa League and League Cup under Mourinho.
