Ex- Red Devil Gary Neville has stated that the way Manchester United FC are playing, they just need to sign two big names to start looking like Barcelona FC.
While Barcelona has now scored 14 goals in the past 3 games, 4 of the last eight games Manchester United were involved in ended up goal less. Yet Gary Neville thinks that United is just two big signings away from playing like Barcelona.
a If you put two more players into Manchester Uniteda s team, say a Gareth Bale or a Cristiano Ronaldo into that team, that team could win the league easily,a he told listeners of his own podcast, according to goal.com.
Neville emphasized on the need to find a goal scoring talisman to take advantage of United’s possession play.
a But they need that match-winner, that Neymar, that Luis Suarez, the one that is going to light up a game and score one or two goals to take it away, then all of a sudden they would look like a Barcelona, because theya re dominating possession, making teams look foolish.a , he said.
Is signing big players the answer?
Manchester United have already spent in excess of 300 million pounds in assembling their present squad and the big question on the minds of the fans is whether splurging cash on big signings is the answer to the Red Devils woes.
The failure of Angel di Maria at Old Trafford has shown that it might not simply be a case of bringing in world class players and that there are deeper issues that need to be resolved. United already have young talent in the form of Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay, but are failing to score goals.
