Manchester United legend-turned-pundit Paul Scholes has said that the Red Devils are unlikely to challenge for the Premier League title next term. The Mancunian giants have improved immensely under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the second half of the campaign but Scholes does not reckon that the club can compete for the English crown next season.

Speaking to BT Sport, Scholes said that United need another rebuild during the summer and he is unsure whether Ole can transform them into genuine title candidates, he said: “It feels like you almost need a full rebuild again. A lot of people expect United to challenge for league next year and I can’t see it. Liverpool showed signs last year they could challenge. United, there’s nothing telling me they’ll challenge next season.Give it £200million and give Ole a summer window, but Ole will have to improve this squad massively.”
