Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told the minimum he must achieve this season after signing Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer transfer window.
“This is Ole’s squad now – there had been a hangover from previous managers, but he’s probably had the best window Man United have had in many years,” Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand told the Mirror.
“He’s brought in two proven winners – two certified world-class players, including one of the greatest players of all time – and another lad who we think is going to be right up there [Sancho].
“Par for the course would be improvement on last season, where they finished runners-up in the Premier League and reached a final in Europe.
“Year on year, Ole has delivered improvement – and if he does it again this season, that should put United in touching distance of at least one major trophy.”
