Both signings, though yet to make their full debuts for the Red Devils, are sure to improve United’s side as they look to challenge Manchester City and Chelsea for the Premier League title this season.
However, onlookers on social media still feel that the side are a central midfielder away from competing for major honours.
The lack of a quality defensive midfielder will cost Manchester United this season.
