Gary Neville has highlighted the four positions Manchester United must strengthen this summer.

New manager Erik ten Hag has a job on his hands kicking off another new era at Old Trafford, and has wasted no time looking to sign Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona who he coached three years ago at Ajax.

United on Friday confirmed that five first-team players will leave on free transfers at the end of the month - Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani and Nemanja Matic - and Neville says those players, plus full-backs, are a must this summer.

“I think, to be honest with you, I don’t know which area needs strengthening fully until we know which players the new manager likes,” Neville told the club's official website.

“We know the areas they absolutely need to actually strengthen,” he added. “Central midfield is an absolute necessity. An absolute necessity. Manchester United need midfield players.

“They also need a centre-forward. I know Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to stay and he’s an absolutely brilliant performer, but they need a centre-forward. Centre-forward is a must.

“I think there’ll need to be a wide player, just to beef up the squad, and I think full-backs are absolutely critical in the modern game. [There are] four full-backs there, it’ll be interesting to see which two, three or four of those are liked.”
