Paul Ince has warned Manchester United that they’re going to fail to kick on next season unless they invest within the squad this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s are within the right direction not off course on track to end second in the Premier League this term.
It would be only the second time the Red Devils have finished within the top two since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
United also are through to the Europa League semi-finals and can host Roma within the first leg on Thursday.
However, Ince believes a failure to spend within the transfer market would cause “a lot of issues” for the club next term.
“They aren’t as far away as we thought two years ago. they’re progressing gradually,” he told Sky Sports.
“But thereon performance (Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Leeds) they’re an extended way (off), they need been so inconsistent this season it’s hard to gauge.
“They need money, they have a striker. it’s like [Edinson] Cavani goes to Boca Juniors. they’re getting to have tons of issues next season.
“David de Gea is on £300,000 every week plus as a No.2. [Paul] Pogba could be going. [Donny] Van de Beek cost £40 million and can’t even get a game.
“They are getting to got to invest. But to win titles you would like consistent performances week in and week out. and that we haven’t seen that this season from United albeit they need to be got the results.”
Ince spoke out against Solskjaer’s appointment as interim manager back in 2018, and he believes United should have turned to a teacher with more experience.
“Listen, I feel Ole is usually calm and doesn’t get too emotional about situations. At the time, once they gave Ole the work, I assumed he was inexperienced for one of the most important clubs within the world.
“I thought there have been better managers out there with more experience, like Steve Bruce or Mark Hughes, who could have are available and done a far better job.
“But saying that he’s changed the mindset of the players after [Jose] Mourinho and therefore the results are very, very good.
“The performances have still been inconsistent, even last week against Burnley, it wasn’t an excellent performance.
“We check out they’re away recorded, they keep going behind then returning. They’ve got great character and mental toughness to return.
“As a manager, you don’t want to stay going behind in games and having to return but it shows you’ve got the character and mental side to try to do that.
“Listen, next year, Chelsea are going to be strong, Arsenal is going to be, Spurs are going to be, there’ll be tons of teams that are strong. At the instant, well done, but there’s still extended thanks to going.”
