Former Manchester United captain and club legend Wayne Rooney spoke about the work which needs to be done at his old club and how, whatever transfer business happens, he doesn't expect them to challenge for the league next season.
“The first thing Ole has to do is build the squad and I don't think bringing in one or two players for £100m is going to help the players already there,” he told the BBC. “You could bring in players like Ronaldo, Messi, Ramos or Bale but it's going to cost you £350m and you'd get two years out of them and you've written that money off."
Rooney believes there is a better way forward for the club than dumping heavy sums of money at expensive, older players. "Ole's better spending £30-40m on players with potential and building the squad around those five or six players."
