Gary Neville believes that Manchester United can make three signings this summer that would deliver them the Premier League title next season: Harry Kane, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane. Undoubtedly those three world class talents would improve any squad in any league and Neville believes the centre-back, winger and centre-forward would bridge the gap between United and City. The Red Devils legend was asked in a Twitter Q&A: ‘Where can Man Utd finish next season with the right signings?’

It is expected to be a busy summer at Old Trafford, with some huge transfers in the offing, but whether they could pull off that trio of arrivals is yet to be seen. Club owners, the Glazer family, have been touted as likely to make a marquee signing in order to appease disgruntled fans after the European Super League debacle, but whether they might not quite be ready to spend around £300m on three players.
Sancho is the most likely of the three to arrive at Old Trafford this summer, having long been linked with a move to the Red Devils and United seemingly cooling their need for a centre-forward by signing Edinson Cavani on a new one-year contract. The Borussia Dortmund and England winger now appears to be United’s prime target, along with a new centre-back to play alongside Harry Maguire. That is where Varane has come into the picture, with the Real Madrid defender out of contract at the end of next season, so a deal is a possibility, but so is a new contract in the Spanish capital, which the club are keen to achieve. Kane has emerged as a possibility since making it clear he wants to leave Tottenham this summer, but Spurs want an enormous fee for the England captain, likely to be well over £100m. Manchester City are the bookmakers’ favourites to sign Kane as they look for a replacement for the out-going Sergio Aguero.
