MANCHESTER UNITED will have a lot of problems next season unless they spend big, according to Paul Ince.

The ex-Red Devils midfielder thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are too inconsistent.

And he urged the Old Trafford side to splash out this summer in a bid to close the gap to Manchester City.

Sunday's 0-0 draw with Leeds left them 10 points behind Pep Guardiola's side with five games to play.

United haven't won the Premier League since 2013 and Ince says 'they need money' to change that.

Ince told Sky Sports: "They are not as far off as we thought two years ago. They are progressing gradually.

"But on that Leeds performance they are a long way off, they have been so inconsistent this season it is hard to judge.

"They need money, they need a striker. It looks like Cavani is going to Boca Juniors. They are going have a lot of issues next season."


Ince added: "David de Gea is on £300k a week plus as a No 2. Pogba might be going. Van de Beek cost £40million and can’t even get a game.

"They are going to need to invest. But to win titles you need consistent performances week in and week out.

"And we have not seen that this season from United even if they have got the results."

Ince appeared in the Sky Sports studio and was critical of United's performance in the drab draw at Leeds.

He said: “Sometimes you can be fooled by a result and think a team’s playing well. But you saw against Burnley last week, we saw again today, they’re just so inconsistent.

“Harry mentioned about tempo and intensity that they had. I didn’t see it. I don’t know what game he was playing in.”

Ince added: “It’s a tough place to go, you can understand that. But when he talks about the tempo was there, the intensity was there, it wasn’t there.

“It was that bad, the ref blew up before the four minutes of injury time.

“It was just a bad performance from both teams, the quality was poor, sometimes it was like watching a kids’ team play.

“They were giving it away, to me to you, kick it out of play. They need to play a lot better on Thursday.”
