Cristiano Ronaldo is among a group of senior Manchester United players who have reportedly told the club’s hierarchy that new players are needed.
United have had a nightmarish start to the Premier League season under new manager Erik ten Hag and are currently bottom of the Premier League after defeats to Brighton and Brentford.
According to The Mirror, Ronaldo, Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes have made it clear to the club that further signings are needed before the transfer window closes on September 1.

Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes have also expressed concern about the situation
So far this summer United have brought in Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen and Tyrell Malacia.
However, it is clear that further reinforcements are needed, especially in the midfield, which has been a problem area for United for quite some time.
FC Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong is closely linked with United, but a deal has yet to be finalized.
Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw are also part of the group that spoke to the club
Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot has emerged as a target for Ten Hag’s squad.
United have lost a large number of players, including Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.
The next task for United is to host Liverpool, and another defeat would only add to feelings of discontent around the club.
