Manchester United legend convinced Mourinho building title winning team

Manchester United legend Denis Irwin believes Jose Mourinho is putting together a title winning team.

Irwin is impressed by Mourinho’s work in the transfer market since his arrival.

He said: “Since Jose has come to the club, the seven players they’ve signed a lot of them are tall, physical players – players you need for the Premier League. There’s a good mixture of youth and experience too.

“There’s great competition in the squad now, there’s a good mixture of midfielders and attackers and I think that the club will be close to challenging this year.

“They need to show more consistency and score more goals than last year, but they’re in a better position now to challenge with the squad they’ve got.

“Lukaku is a 25 goals-a-season striker, I expect Marcus [Rashford] to even better this year and I see [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan improving a lot as well, so I expect to see more goals.

“I expect them to challenge [for the title] this year.”
