Manchester United 'Won't Finish In The Top Four' Unless They Make One Key Signing

Former England and Chelsea star John Terry believes that Manchester United will not finish in the top four unless they make more additions to the squad.

After finishing 12 points behind Manchester City last season, United have since splashed the cash to bridge that gap through the signings of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

However, title rivals such as Chelsea and Manchester City have also significantly strengthened after recently announcing the signings of Romelu Lukaku and Jack Grealish.

Terry believes that as United have not signed a striker, this will give other teams the opportunity to overtake the Red Devils which could see them fall outside of the Champions League spots.

When speaking with Stadium Astro, he said: "With Rashford out, I don't know quite how long he's going to be out for, but quite possibly (that could be the area that lets them down) but they've got strength in depth.

"With Cavani, he's older and he needs managing. I think with Solskjaer playing and the likes of Michael Carrick being there, they'll know they can't push him every single day. He's one of those players that they maybe need to send in, or keep inside and let him have a massage or a kind of spa day.

"It's all about managing him and I think Solskjaer does that very well with all of his players. If they need to get the best out of Cavani for the first two or three months while Marcus is injured I'm sure they'll know the best way possible to do that.

"Again, it's about managing that group of players but if Man Utd really want to go out and compete I think they need to go out and buy a big striker who is going to get you 25-30 goals. That's difficult to do. It would probably cost £100 to £120million which isn't always easy to do."

When Terry was asked for his prediction for the top four, he said: "I'd go Chelsea, Man City as first or second, I'd go Leicester fourth and I will go Liverpool third."
