It’s obviously tongue in cheek because nobody in the right mind thinks United can win the league next season.

Unfortunately, the title race is likely to be between Manchester City and Liverpool again.

United should be targeting a top four finish and work towards building something over the next few years. Then, it will hopefully be time to talk about the Red Devils as realistic title contenders.
