Keane calls for United spending spree

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane believes his old club need to sign five or six players in a summer revamp to get them back “where they belong.”

Payne: Three reasons why United can beat Arsenal

In a swipe at his ex-manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who criticised the Irishman in his recent autobiography, Keane said that United have “cut corners” in the transfer market in recent years and are paying the price for it now.

And the Republic of Ireland assistant manager urged Red Devils boss David Moyes to try and bring in a number of world-class players to herald an “exciting” new era at Old Trafford.

He said: “I think Man United need five or six players. If it happens in the summer then instead of being fearful of it, embrace it -- it’s exciting.

“These can be exciting times for Man United. Get them back to the very top where they belong. They’ve kind of cut corners in terms of transfers in the last few years, they’ve not gone out and got the big players, and it’s just caught up with them this year.”

Keane also believes United should stick with Moyes, despite the Scot’s difficult start to life at Old Trafford, adding: “I think the man deserves plenty of time. I think people have been afraid to use the word that there might be ‘rebuilding’ going on, but that’s exactly the word I would use.”

Meanwhile, Moyes was asked this week why United go into Wednesday’s game against Arsenal with 21 fewer points than they had at this stage last season, to which he replied: “I was at Everton so I wasn't 21 points worse off. I was at Everton.”

However, Moyes’ Everton had one more point -- 42 -- after 25 league games last season than his United team have in the same period of the current campaign.
