Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Manchester United must strengthen their squad if they are to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

Manchester City were confirmed as Premier League champions after Man United fell to a 2-1 defeat to Leicester City last night, as Red Devils' defeat handed Pep Guardiola's side an unassailable 10-point lead at the top, with three matches remaining.

Solskjaer admitted United need to bolster their squad to take up the title challenge, sending a clear message to the club hierarchy.

"If we want to take up the challenge with them we need to strengthen our squad," Solskjaer told BT Sport [via MEN] when asked about the battle with Man City.

He also congratulated Man City for becoming the Premier League champions, while also stating he is pleased with his players who kept the title race alive until their defeat to Leicester.

"Congratulations to them. They have had a fantastic season. I am very pleased with my boys that have made it to the last 10 days with a Manchester City side ahead of us that are lauded as the best in Europe.

"We want to take the next step and it might be that we need a couple more to strengthen the squad."
