Barcelona's Sergi Roberto wanted as Nemanja Matic replacement following Manchester United

Barcelona's Sergi Roberto wanted as Nemanja Matic replacement following Manchester United

United haven't won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson's final campaign in charge in 2012/13, but Neville believes that Jose Mourinho's team could enjoy a successful season following the £40 million signing of Matic. Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League past year.

Matic was frustrated with the result but has called on United to turn their full focus to Sunday's league opener against West Ham.

Neville had his say on the matter at the Premier League launch in London today.

"They are getting rid of players who are experienced and from who you know exactly what you're going to get".

"Chelsea are weaker than last season - no Diego Costa, no Matic - and I'm concerned for them. And I do not think he likes it and I do not think he agrees with it because he said he has to strengthen now and fill that gap".

"There is very rarely such big transfers between champions to clubs that are challenging them and it is a unusual move".

"We had an opportunity to equalise, Marcus (Rashford) had a good chance and didn't score, unluckily for us, but this is football".

"In every position, we have two very good players, so I am optimistic for this season and let's forget about Madrid".

But doubts are creeping in over whether they have enough depth to retain their trophy as well as compete with Europe's elite in the Champions League.

Herrera says United simply came up short against the "best team in the world" - a philosophical stance that echoed his manager's post-match thoughts.

Chelsea's squad, or whatever's left of it by the time kick-off rolls around in a little over 48 hours, face a theoretically much weaker Burnley side at Stamford Bridge, but if there is one thing that Burnley won't do is make it easy for the boys in brand new Nike blue.
