Man Utd need three star transfers to compete for Premier League AND Champions League next season, predicts Giggs
RYAN GIGGS has claimed Manchester United need THREE first-team quality stars to challenge domestically and in Europe in 2020-21.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer masterminded a late surge up the table to grab a spot in the Premier League's top-four – and a Champions League spot for next season.
With Bruno Fernandes fully-integrated into the squad and the front-three on fire, Man Utd flew up the table to ultimately finish third, with a key final-day win over Leicester.
But Giggs says it was clear Man Utd's first XI were running out of puff by the end of their post-lockdown run with rotation not an option.
And the 13-time Premier League winner believes Solskjaer needs to inject some star quality this summer.
United have been linked with a hoard of big-name stars, including Jadon Sancho, Wilfried Zaha and Jack Grealish on the attacking end.
In defence, Solskjaer wants Chelsea target Ben Chilwell, Nathan Ake and Kalidou Koulibaly.
But there are question marks over David De Gea's spot in goal, too – with Giggs saying no fewer than three signings will do.

On grabbing a Champions League spot, Giggs told Premier League Productions: "It’s huge for attracting players.
"Some players will choose clubs that are in the Champions League.
"And [it helps] in holding on to some players too. It’s just huge.
"Eventually when we get crowds back, Champions League nights at Old Trafford are special.
"Ole's beginning to mould a team which is exciting.
"He said that they were running out of legs a little bit.
"After lockdown, he’s played the same team more or less, which he had to because they’re on such a good run – so it was hard to chop and change.
"They need three players I would say that can go into the starting XI, even to challenge for the league and the Champions League next year."
