Shaka Hislop has urged Manchester United to try and sign both Toby Alderweireld and Willian this summer to get closer to Manchester City.

The Red Devils are likely to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as Jose Mourinho looks to assemble a squad that is finally capable of winning the Premier League title.

Despite Mourinho hinting that he is not looking to bring in any more attacking reinforcements this summer, Chelsea FC star Willian has continued to be touted as a possible target for the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur defender Alderweireld has been linked with a possible move away from White Hart Lane to link up with Manchester United this summer as well.

Manchester United are bound to be keen to build a squad they feel will be capable of challenging Manchester City’s dominance next season.

And former goalkeeper Hislop reckons that moves to land both Alderweireld and Willian would be a smart transfer decision.

Speaking to ESPN FC, Hislop said: “I think it [signing Willian and Alderweireld] gets them closer to City certainly.

“But as we said right now I think City are favourites.

“But I think those two players add to United no question.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their FA Cup final showdown against Chelsea FC at Wembley on Saturday evening as they look to try and end the campaign with a trophy.
