A former Manchester United defender believes Jose Mourinho’s men will beat Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the title race this season.
Jaap Stam, who played for the Red Devils between 1998–2001, believes the Old Trafford club did some good business in the transfer window and feels that could give them the edge over the Citizens.
“I certainly think they can (win the title), because they’ve brought in quite a few new players with a lot of quality,” Stam told the Daily Express.
“With the manager that they have, with the players that they have, the quality of the players, the mentality of the players that they have within the squad I’m certain that they can go all the way.”
Jose Mourinho signed Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the last transfer window, but there are rumours that their might be a few more new faces come January.
Stam made 125 appearances for the Red Devils during his career and is now coaching Championship side Reading.
