Nemanja Matic believes that Manchester United need to sign a number of experienced players in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils ended the season without a trophy after they were beaten by Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final on Saturday as Eden Hazard’s first half penalty ended up deciding the game.

It was a disappointing end to Jose Mourinho’s second campaign in charge at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils having improved in the Premier League and ending up in second place in the table.

Attentions will now inevitably turn towards the summer transfer window and the players Manchester United could be set to sign to bolster their squad.

Mourinho is likely to have identified a number of targets for the summer as the Red Devils look to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

And former Chelsea FC midfielder Matic feels that Manchester United will need to make a number of top quality signings this summer.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Matic said: “I think we need some players with some experience to bring some more qualities to our team.

“After that, we can fight for the title and the Champions League also. I think that we have improved. As you know, United last year were sixth. The year before that, fifth.

“So we improve, we are second. The only team who is better than us this year is Man City. Obviously, they play amazing football. But we are second and we are in the Champions League next year which is the most important thing.

“As you saw in the game, we tried to play – we played good football – but Chelsea have some players that can punish every mistake like Hazard did so we have to accept to see where we can improve and next year to try and win some trophies.”

Manchester United have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge in 2013.

However, their second placed finish this season was their best since that campaign.
