Man United idol expects title charge after spending spree

Manchester United are in a good position to push for the Premier League title after snapping up Radamel Falcao and Daley Blind, according to former strike star Dwight Yorke.

The Red Devils cemented their place as English football’s top spenders yesterday as they paid big to loan the Colombian forward and snap up the Dutchman from Ajax to add to their ranks.

Just a week before Angel di Maria’s £59.7m arrival smashed the British transfer record, while Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo have also been snapped up for big money.

Despite the success off of the pitch, United have endured a woeful start on the field, with just two points having been secured from winnable games against Swansea, Sunderland and Burnley.

But Yorke feels that the positivity at the Theatre of Dreams and the long-term vision of Louis van Gaal will bring success:

“With the team the manager is building, I believe it is good enough to go and win the Premier League.” He is quoted by The Express.

“They are playing catch-up at this moment and they need to start getting results now, but if they can do that the confidence will generate and when that builds up you’ve seen what they’ve done in the past.

“There is no doubt in my mind Manchester United could go on to win the league from here.

“I know a lot of people will be questioning that, saying the new players need time to bed in, but these players are world-class players, not just players trying to fit into the football club. These players are that good that it’s easy to fit into the system of Van Gaal.

“The players Man United now have at their disposal will send alarm bells ringing in the Premier League.”

Falcao and Blind in, title charge on…. Calm down
