Roy Keane believes Manchester United need at least four new signings in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils slumped to a 2-0 loss to Premier League leaders Manchester City in their derby clash at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Manchester United made a positive start and managed to keep the Citizens at bay until half-time before the defending champions made the breakthrough.

Portugal international Bernardo Silva managed to squeeze a finish past Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea at the near post to break the deadlock.

Leroy Sane came off the bench to extend Manchester City’s lead to secure three points and leave the Red Devils contemplating a eighth defeat in 10 games.

Manchester United are in sixth spot in the Premier League table and three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea FC with three games to go.

Former Red Devils captain Keane identified where Manchester United need to improve their team in the summer transfer window.

“The worry for me is, they certainly need a couple of centre-halves and two full-backs. That’s four for starters,” Keane told Sky Sports.

“I think defensively, the back four, I don’t think [Luke] Shaw’s up to it, in defence of [Ashley] Young he’s not a full-back, I know he’s been doing a job there for the last few years. Two centre-halves and then you take it from there.”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action with a clash against Chelsea FC at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon in a fixture that could decide their top-four fate.

The Red Devils have only managed to finish in the top four on two occasions since Sir Alex Ferguson stood down as manager at the end of the 2012-13 season.
