United finished second last term behind rivals Man City who won the title under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola.

However, despite missing out on the domestic crown, the Red Devils did show a glimpse of significant progress and appear to be on the up.

Rooney now contends the addition of the English winger and a few more will help his former side have a good shot at finishing top of the table.

“United fans will be excited with Sancho coming in, I’m sure there will be one or two more who come in,” Rooney told talkSPORT.
“I know the club very well, they’ll have expectations on themselves, expectations from the fans to be successful in a year which Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] will be looking at and really having a good shot at winning the Premier League," he added.
