Phil Neville has revealed the five players he wants Manchester United to sign in the summer – and the former defender's wishlist is certain to whet the appetite of the Old Trafford faithful…
United are yet to confirm their next permanent manager, although caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the favourite to secure the job having impressed since replacing Jose Mourinho in December.
But that hasn't stopped Neville from flashing the fantasy cheque book ahead of the summer, with the 42-year-old naming his dream arrivals at United...
Phil Neville's dream Manchester United signings
|Gareth Bale||29||Forward||Real Madrid|
|Raphael Varane||25||Defender||Real Madrid|
"Gareth Bale is ready-made," Neville told Premier League Today.
"Ole has said he wants to buy a hungry player. I think [Jadon] Sancho is that hungry player. But Bale has won Champions Leagues and played at the top level.
"I don't think wages are an issue at Manchester United. You are talking guaranteed quality who can play across the front line."
But the spending wouldn't stop there for United if Neville had his way, with the defence and midfield also being strengthened.
"The two signings in the back four would be Raphael Varane from Real Madrid and Joao Cancelo from Juventus," Neville said.
"Cancelo, I worked with him at Valencia and have seen him at Juventus and I think he's top drawer."
He added: "Eric Dier as the holding midfield player and Philippe Coutinho, who there has been a bit of speculation about.
"You have to have British players in a title-winning team. [Ander] Herrera, Fred and [Scott] McTominay are part of the squad. [Nemanja] Matic, this season, has had a dip."
