Manchester United need reinforcements in at least three departments in the summer transfer window according to club legend Gary Neville.
United have endured a miserable campaign this term, eventually missing out on a top-four spot.

And despite, a measly show of results, Solksjaer is said to have the backing of the board who are ready to invest heavily into a squad overhaul in the summer.
United are in the market for a centre back with a right-sided winger said to be high on Solksjaer’s priority list.
They are also set to show the door to players who the manager may deem as surplus.
Midfielder Ander Hererra is almost an inevitable departure in the summer after reports emerged that he’d agreed to a four-year contract with French giants Paris Saint Germain worth £25M.
Former United man Neville chipped in with his views on the Spaniard’s transfer scenario and said :
“United need to strengthen at the back with full-backs and centre-backs, they need another midfield player,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“Reports this morning are that Herrera is going to PSG, so they’ll need to strengthen in midfield just to replace what’s there.
“I think it’s a loss Ander Herrera leaving.
“If you’re going to have five midfield players, which any modern-day squad would need, particularly if you’re going to play three in midfield, you can’t have everybody that’s going to be A1 perfect.
“They can’t all be [Paul] Pogba sort of ability.
“You need people like Ander Herrera, who has done a brilliant job, he’s been a great pro, he’s been good to the club, he’s behaved well. Everything’s been right about him.
“He does a good job in certain games, he compliments what Pogba is and what Matic is.
“Matic is more of a static player whereas Herrera is more of a runner and gets about the pitch.”
