Harry Redknapp Gives His Tip On Who’ll Be 2011/12 Champions
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Manchester United are hot favourites to reclaim the title this season after the Champions spent over £50million so far this transfer window.
United’s spending spree won’t stop with the signings of Phil Jones, Ashley Young and David de Gea. Sir Alex Ferguson has also confirmed the club are looking to replace the recently retired Paul Scholes and Harry Redknapp believes United’s spending power will prove to much for the chasing pack.
“It’s frightening when you think United are the defending champions and they go out and spend over £50 million on Phil Jones, Ashley Young and David de Gea.
“Jones is a fantastic prospect and it’s no surprise all the top clubs were desperate to sign him from Blackburn.
“Young is a phenomenal player with pace and an eye for goal. I can’t even begin to imagine how much better he will be playing in that United side. And in De Gea they have one of the best young goalkeepers in the world.
“It goes to show what you are up against. If you are not prepared to spend big and pay the wages, what chance do you have?”
The former Pompey manager still believes Chelsea and United are the teams to beat, despite Manchester City’s riches.
“United and Chelsea are going to be the teams to beat, for sure, next season,” he said.
“But if I had to take a punt I think United will take some beating after strengthening with those three players already.”
