Wayne Rooney says new signings can help Man Utd challenge for title.



Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is convinced the Red Devils will have a chance to challenge for the Premier League title next season, if they recruit the right players.

Louis van Gaal's side, who finished in fourth position last term following a stuttering start to the 2014-15 campaign, have already sealed the services of Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven on a four-year contract and are looking to strengthen in other areas as well.

The Reds only won three of their opening 10 matches in Van Gaals's debut season, and Rooney reckons a better start next term will be key to United's title challenge.

"I honestly believe we will go far next year and won't be far off challenging for the league,” he said on his official website.

"If you look at the first 10 to 11 games, we only had around 13 points and if you look at where we finished, I think it shows we could have been up there with a better start.

"We've dominated and outplayed most teams but haven't taken our chances to win those games. It could have been a different story if we had.

"The most important thing is as a squad, including the manager and myself, we believe we are close to challenging for the title.

“With a couple of signings in the summer we will have a good chance of doing that. It would be good to win as many cups as possible.

“A club like Manchester United should be winning trophies and hopefully next season we can put that right.
