Former Manchester United captain Garry Neville believes his old club must make a number of key signings if they are to be considered a serious side any longer.

Speaking after United’s 2-0 loss at Anfield on Sunday, the former right back insists the current talent at United is nowhere near challenging for top football honours.

“United have to go into the market. They need someone up there with a physical presence and a bit more maturity – and they need another body,” the Sky Sports pundit said.

Neville’s comments come after United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that his key man Marcus Rashford who missed the Anfield trip through an injury, could be side-lined for six weeks.

According to the former Molde manager, the England international suffered a back fracture that has now sent the Old Trafford camp in panic.

“It’s an unfortunate situation we are in. He has suffered a bad injury. It’s a stress fracture, it happened against Wolverhampton. “It’s unlucky for Marcus, he will be out for a while for us,” Solskjaer revealed.

According to Solskjaer added the 22-year old’s injury could force the Mancunians into the transfer market and that loan deals were an option.

“We might look at some short-term deals as well. If there are the right players there and they fit, we can buy. If there are loans available, that might be possible,” he said in an interview.
