Paul Scholes says that Manchester United are ‘three or four’ signings away from competing for the Premier League title as the Old Trafford icon praised new arrival Bruno Fernandes.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side lie in fifth position and a mammoth 37 points behind league leaders Liverpool, but performances before the suspension of the season have left fans with cause for optimism.
That is in no small part down to the resurgence of the side with new signing Fernandes in the team. The Portuguese has settled well into English football, scooping February’s Player of the Month award.

The arrival of Bruno Fernandes has lead to plenty of optimism with United performing strongly
Scholes, who spent the duration of his career at United, believes his former club are still a handful of signings away from being at the level of Liverpool and Manchester City.
‘I still think they are a bit off the pace, they’ve looked good lately since Fernandes came in but Liverpool and Manchester City are streets ahead,’ Scholes told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Friday Football Social.

‘There are three or four signings that can help but for the first time in a long time you feel like they could close the gap to the top.’
Fernandes is the pivotal No 10 that has been severely lacking for some time at United, and Scholes feels every top team needs a player of that calibre to propel them to success.
‘They are still behind, but they have bought a brilliant player in who seems to have knitted it all together,’ he added. ‘They did have a really good group of players but missed that one person who can make a difference – like a David Silva or Kevin de Bruyne who can glue the team together with their attacking movements.’
