Manchester United can’t be written off in the Premier League in the 2018-19 season, Danny Mills has warned.

The Red Devils endured a frustrating summer transfer window following a mere three additions to their squad.

Manchester United spent £52m on Brazil international Fred from Ukrainian Premier League champions Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 20-time English champions added FC Porto teenager Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Manchester United finished 19 points adrift of Manchester City last term despite placing in second spot under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils boss has shown his discontent throughout the 2018 summer transfer window due to a lack of signings.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Leicester City in their Premier League opener on Friday night.

Former Manchester City defender Mills believes Manchester United can’t be discounted from the title race despite a difficult summer.

“You have to be very careful with the way you read Mourinho because of the way he plays the media, and deflects attention from other things,” Mills told BBC Sport.

“Don’t write them off on the back of him messing about in a press conference, saying I haven’t got this or that. In fact, write them off at your peril.”

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.

The Red Devils did secure their best finish since the Ferguson era last term under Mourinho.
