Manchester United legend Roy Keane thinks the signings of Harry Kane and Jack Grealish would be enough for the club to compete for next season's Premier League title.

The Red Devils look likely to finish second behind local rivals Manchester City this season.

Asked what he felt Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side needed to close the gap on City, Keane told Sky Sports: "I still feel they are two or three players away from challenging Man City.

"They're short. They still need a world-class striker, they need another midfielder and also possibly a centre-half. But I'd prioritise a striker and a midfielder.

"The two players who I've thought about over the last few weeks who I feel would be brilliant for Man Utd are Harry Kane up front - whatever it costs - and I'd go with Jack Grealish. I feel United are still short of that special player. I think Grealish would give them that and I feel he would enjoy playing at Old Trafford.

"The fans would love him. What I admire about Jack is he's got great courage on the football pitch. He always wants the ball in tight areas. We've seen over the last year or two his end product has improved. He's an excellent player and obviously Kane would guarantee goals.

"Would it be difficult to get these two players? You bet your life it would be, but Man Utd have to go out and try to sign the best otherwise we'll be having the same conversations next year about being nearly there. Jack would be ready for Man Utd. He's done well for Aston Villa, a brilliant club who are doing very well, but Jack's got to be selfish.

"He's got to look to step up to the next level."
