‘Five Minimum’ ‘Need A Whole New Spine’ – Fans On Twitter Debate How Many Summer Signings United Need

The defeats to Wolves and Arsenal have shone a new light on the weaknesses in United’s squad.

One journalist feels that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need to sign at least four players to strengthen his side in the summer:

Fans on Twitter believe there could be an even bigger clearout in the summer:

Other supporters believe there shouldn’t such a kneejerk reaction after two losses in a row:

The bulk of this squad managed to finish second in the Premier League last season, but there are some obvious areas that requiring strengthening.

Another creative midfielder to compliment Paul Pogba in central midfield would certainly be welcome, while a commanding centre-back with leadership qualities will likely be a priority.

In other areas, a competitor for Luke Shaw at left-back will be eyed, and if Alexis Sanchez is offloaded, another wide player would also be required.

Other than that, Solskjaer may want to give chances to youth players as he has already done so during his brief time in charge. He won’t want to block routes to first-team football for youngsters by bringing in a boatload of new players.
