Former England International and ESPN pundit John Barnes says that Manchester United need to recruit ‘four world-class players’ but admits their performance this season may make it difficult.

Barnes draws similarities between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and Liverpool 10 years ago, suggesting their dip in performance could prove costly in the transfer market.

The Liverpool legend encourages United to not make the same mistake they did by purchasing players that weren’t good for the long-term future of the club.

Having experienced the direct impact performance can have on the recruitment market, Barnes highlights United’s current standings.

The Red Devils position in the Champions League could be more vital than first thought as Barnes believes their season, as it stands, will deter players from joining.

The 56-year-old told BonusCodeBets: ‘With United, it is not about the number of players that they need to purchase, it is more about the quality of the players that they can bring in.

‘For example, 10 years ago, Liverpool signed a load of players, but none of them made the Liverpool side any stronger, and they weren’t good purchases for the long-term future of the club.

‘Clubs will now resist the urge to just make signings just because they want to make signings, as in the long run, they won’t improve the team.

‘At the current stage that United are in, they aren’t in the position to make the quality of signings they want, because those players won’t want to go there.

‘I can say that United need to sign four world-class players, but they won’t get that, not with the club in its current position.’
