Manchester United are European contenders claims rival

Manchester United returned to the European stage this season, after securing a fourth place finish and making it through the Champions League playoff quite comfortably. Despite our absence, our rivals still see the club as a huge threat in continental competition.

Thiago Silva of PSG has spoken to the media and claimed that Manchester United are one of six clubs who could be challenging to get their hands on the big trophy.

“For the Champions League, I reckon it can be our year. And then Real, Barca, Bayern but also keep an eye on City and United, against whom I always lost when I was at Milan.” Thiago Silva said.

Whilst I think we’re a club thats improving all the time, I just don’t see how Manchester United will win European honours this year. We should get through our group but even that won’t be easy.

When we come up against the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich I think we’d be completely blown away at this point in time.
