It has been reported that Wayne Rooney believes that Manchester United will be capable of mounting a serious title bid next campaign.
The last two seasons has been a transitional phase for United which has seen them drop off the pace in the race for the Premier League title.
However, following their return back to the top four last season, things are looking up for United under Louis van Gaal and club captain Rooney believes that his side are now primed to put up a sustained bid to challenge for the premiership in 2015/16.
The England international striker said on his official website: “I honestly believe we will go far next year and won’t be far off challenging for the league.
“If you look at the first 10 to 11 games we only had around 13 points, and if you look at where we finished I think it shows we could have been up there with a better start.
“We’ve dominated and outplayed most teams but haven’t taken our chances to win those games, it could have been a different story if we had. The most important thing is that as a squad, including the manager and myself, we believe we are close to challenging for the title and with a couple of signings in the summer we will have a good chance of doing that.
“It would be good to win as many cups as possible, a club like Manchester United should be winning trophies and hopefully next season we can put that right.”
