Jose Mourinho needs to buy players capable of playing entertaining football, according to Edwin Van Der Sar.
“Of course in my area there’s a certain type of football that you like to play but that depends on the manager,” he said.
“I think the crowd wants also a type of footballer; let’s hope with the signings he’s making and the type of football they want to play at United, they can have some success.
“Maybe it’s more difficult, now more money is coming into the game.
Others are also catching up a lot. Maybe richer owners are investing larger amounts of money into the squad.
“Hopefully United can catch up. [They] finished second, lost the FA Cup final.
“This year they need another two, three signings to stay a little bit more on that level with City than this year.”
