BBC Sport - Manchester United signings need time to gel - Phil Neville

'Man Utd signings need time to gel'

Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville believes manager Louis van Gaal's new signings will need time to adapt, but backs the club to reach the Champions League this season.

United have agreed to sign Colombia striker Radamel Falcao in a £6m season-long loan deal from Monaco, having already broken the British transfer record this summer with the £59.7m capture of Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid.

Neville predicts some exciting times for Manchester United fans, but believes their will be "ups and downs throughout the season".
