Manchester United have shown some tremendous progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the past couple of seasons. They finished in second in the Premier League in the 2020/21 campaign and also ended up us runners-up in the Europa League. But it does feel like they need to add a bit more to this squad in order to take the final step and get back to winning titles.
The club had a brilliant chance to win their first piece of silverware under Solskjaer in the Europa League final when they faced Villarreal. The Red Devils were considered the favourites going into the game with the Yellow Submarine having finished 7th in the La Liga table and had never won a major trophy in their history.
It was Unai Emery’s side that ultimately came out victorious on the night, after an incredible penalty shootout. And this just extended Manchester United’s search for a title, who are now four seasons without having won a trophy.
"‘We have to strengthen ourselves.‘Of course, something will happen in the transfer window.‘The world has become very different than it was 15 or 16 months ago, but we have to make some moves in the transfer window and also with the team.’"

Manchester United need a couple of big signings to become title contenders
It is safe to say that this team is not too far away from establishing themselves as title contenders and need to just make a couple of signings.
Overall, the Red Devils are already pretty strong, as they showed in the previous campaign and just need a little bit more quality in the squad to get back to winning trophies.
The club have been linked with some exciting names over the past several months including the likes of Jadon Sancho, Declan Rice, Raphael Varane and Harry Kane just to name a few. And one or two of those signings could very well be enough to turn Solskjaer’s side into contenders, both domestically and in Europe.
