Manchester United need to sign up to 10 new players in the summer transfer window, according to former Liverpool midfielder Ronnie Whelan.

The Red Devils are on the brink of elimination from the Champions League after a 2-0 loss to Olympiacos in the first leg of their last-16 clash on Tuesday night.

People are saying United need five or six players but they need to get in eight, nine or 10

United are 11 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, and the defending Premier League champions have crashed out of the FA Cup and League Cup.

Former Red Devils captain Roy Keane claimed United needed to sign six world-class players at the end of the season following the defeat in Greece.

But Keane’s compatriot Whelan reckons David Moyes need to give United a drastic facelift.

“People are saying United need five or six players but they need to get in eight, nine or 10,” Whelan said on RTE.

On Tuesday, Keane claimed Moyes would have been privately shocked by the United squad that he was inheriting from Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I think United need six top quality players,” Keane told ITV. “I would think David Moyes has been shocked.

“I think when he went into United in the summer he probably looked at the players and was expecting great things.

“Privately, he’s probably been shocked at the lack of quality he’s working with.

“There’s some players playing tonight for Man United who just aren’t showing enough quality.”
