Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says at least two players are needed to fight for the title next season.
The Englishman says United's slow start to this season was the reason why they failed to challenge Chelsea until the very end.
But he is confident the Red Devils can fight for trophies if they add new players during the summer.
"You take the first 10, 11 games and I think we had 13 points," Rooney is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
"When you consider from after that amount of games to where we've finished, we've probably got as many points after that as anyone else.
"I think we're close, there's no doubt about it.
"You can see in our performances, we're outplaying teams, dominating possession, and it's just that final thing of taking our chances.
"As a group of players, myself and the manager – we all believe we're close and I'm sure with a player or two in the summer we'll have a good chance of going for the title."
