Manchester United great Paul Scholes believes the club now only need two or three top-class signings to push for the Premier League, rather than four or five.
United are currently on a 16-match unbeaten run, having not lost in any competition since January.
The return from injuries of Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba has given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side a massive boost, especially with the pair finally being able to link up with Bruno Fernandes.
Despite their good form, United have still been well off the pace set by champions Liverpool this season. It's is a huge gap to make up next season, but Scholes believes they are now only a few players away from being title challengers once again and wants the club to sign another centre-back and a top goal scorer.
"There is a big gap to close, there’s no doubt about that," Scholes told BBC Radio 5 live before United's win over Bournemouth on Saturday. "The points difference is ridiculous and the quality of Man City obviously is there for everyone to see.
"I really don’t think they are a million miles away. I know we spoke about four or five players but I think it’s two or three now.
"I think you are looking at a centre forward, a really classy goal scorer and possibly a centre-half to play next to [Harry] Maguire.
"Look, I think [Victor] Lindelof has done alright but I just think Maguire with his lack of pace at times (can get caught).
"If he’s got a really dominant centre-half next to him like a Rio Ferdinand or Jaap Stam who bullies centre forwards I think that would be a big help to the team."
