Fred insists they're on the right track however and told United's website: "For me the team's done really well and been growing over the season.

"We didn't start that well as we didn't have a pre-season. We had the Europa League semi-final which prolonged last season.

"We didn't have a pre-season and got better and better over the season and reached the final.

"I think overall the team's had a great season, we could have achieved more, we wanted to win more trophies, but I think generally it's been a great season."

The Brazilian played 30 times in the league this season and scored one goal, against Tottenham Hotspur in April.

He often started alongside Scott McTominay in a pivot and Fred believes it brought the best out of him.

"It's really important to me to be starting in games, to be in the XI," he continued.

"I've played and started in a lot of games this season. I'm really happy with this, happy to have been in good form and having a great season together with the entire team.

"As I've already said, I want much more, more trophies with United, I want to achieve a lot here and I'm sure there's a lot more to come."

Solskjaer is aware his side will need strengthening next season should they want to mount a title challenge.

Speaking to TV2, Solskjaer stated: "We were the second-best team, but too far behind to threaten the champions. We have to strengthen ourselves.

"Of course, something will happen in the transfer window.

"The world has become very different than it was 15 or 16 months ago, but we have to make some moves in the transfer window and also with the team."
