OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER believes he still needs 'two or three top players' to turn Manchester United into title contenders, according to reports.
The Red Devils are well and truly in the title race as they sit level on points alongside table-toppers Liverpool with a game in hand.
United haven't won the league since Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
Poor decisions on and off the pitch, including bad player recruitment has seen United playing catch-up with their fiercest league rivals.
But they appear back on the right track which is a dramatic turnaround for Solskjaer who was close to the sack in October.
Club legend Gary Neville doubted United's title credentials this season and it appears Solskjaer himself thinks the club are still lacking certain qualities on the field.
According to the Athletic, the Norwegian has 'maintained he needed two or three top players to make United capable of challenging for titles.'
Getting deals over the line in January remains notoriously difficult, especially for big-name signings.
A winger is thought to be at the top of his shortlist following his failed £108million pursuit of Jadon Sancho in the summer.
Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman remains on the shortlist while his team-mate David Alaba could head to Old Trafford on a free transfer.
The Austrian is out of contract at the end of the season and could slot in at centre-back, on the left or as a defensive midfielder.
And a new central midfielder is also in Solskjaer's plans with Paul Pogba's future left uncertain.
The Frenchman, who has 18 months left on his contract, has been vocal in his desires to leave.
