Manchester United have just smashed their transfer record to land Angel di Maria from Real Madrid - but according to Gary Neville they shouldn't stop there.

Four players including Di Maria have signed on the dotted line this summer but Neville believes two more new faces are needed to make the Red Devils a force again. Arturo Vidal and Daley Blind have both been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

So far Manchester United have spent in the region of £120 million - but their final bill could near the £200 million mark if they follow Neville's advice and target two more players.

“United need a robust central midfield player and they also need a centre-back of real stature. I would say that is still the priority," he said. "[Di Maria] is just one part of a jigsaw that still has pieces missing.”

Louis Van Gaal has previously admitted that he needs options at the back, while he is seemingly after more steel in midfield.

Vidal could cost around £40 million while Ajax will demand around £20 million for Blind - while Nigel de Jong who has also been linked with Old Trafford could cost around £8 million. It certainly seems as though Red Devils need reinforcements - they've yet to win a competitive fixture under Van Gaal.
