MANCHESTER UNITED legend Dimitar Berbatov believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team can challenge for the Premier League title.
The retired Bulgaria international has also praised his former employers for signing Jadon Sancho and agreeing a deal for Raphael Varane.
Speaking to Betfair, Berbatov said: "Manchester United are in a strong position to challenge for the title, especially after the signings they've made this summer.
"I am very happy that they are bringing in Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.
"He is a World Cup and Champions League winner, he has a winning mentality and he has played with the best over the years.
"So, he is a great signing and I am looking forward to seeing how he is going to settle into the team and compliment Harry Maguire.
"Jadon Sancho is already good friends with the England players in United's squad, which is a great thing to have when you go into a new team. Hopefully, this is going to help him settle quickly.
"We already know about his quality, but there's still plenty of room for him to grow and hopefully at United, one of the biggest clubs in the world, he can fulfil his potential.
"I'm sure he is also going to push the other forwards to perform better too. That tends to happen when you have a player of great quality next to you, you lift your game."
The United team is in a good place. They have spent quite a lot of money already and I can't see them spending anymore.
Berbatov, who won two Premier League titles at Old Trafford between 2008 and 2012, also wants United to sign a new right-back.
The Red Devils have been linked with Atletico Madrid star Kieran Trippier throughout the summer but have reportedly ended their interest.
Berbatov added: "They could possibly look to strengthen in the right back position.
"Aaron Wan-Bissaka is definitely first choice but I would like to see him have a solid back up who will challenge and push him.
"Other than that, I think they are pretty complete as a team."
And Berbatov has called for Martial to stay at Old Trafford, with Serie A champions Inter Milan reportedly interested in the player.
The ex-United ace continued: "Inter would not be the best place for Martial.
"His playing style is very technical and he suits going one-on-one with defenders.

"I would like him to stay at United and challenge himself.
"If he can show what he can do in training and then in games then I think he will be fine and he is another great option for United to have.
"I hope he can stay fit, because he's had a few in the past and this can put a real stop on the development of a player."
