Manchester United lack quality to challenge title – Paul Scholes

Former Manchester United midfielder , Paul Scholes , says lack of new signings and uncertainty surrounding the team ’ s strategies and form gives the club a very small chance of challenging for the Premier League title .
United manager Jose Mourinho had expressed frustration over the club ’ s transfer activity on multiple occasions , with goalkeeper Lee Grant , midfielder Fred and defender Diogo Dalot the only new arrivals this season .

United finished with 19 points behind champions and cross -town rivals Manchester City in the league last term .
Scholes who played more than 700 matches for United said the club is lagging behind City and a strengthened Liverpool this season and does not see Mourinho’ s side eclipsing their rivals .

“ When you look at Manchester City, possibly Liverpool , I don’ t think they ( United ) have the quality of those two teams at the moment .

“ Liverpool has made some really good signings . United finished above them last season .

“ I just don’ t see United getting closer to City. City are a really good side , great manager , some great players, a way of playing that they all know about .

“ United seem to be not too sure what’ s going on . You don’ t really know the team , you don’ t really know the players , and you don ’ t know how they’ re going to perform from one week to the next .
