The former Arsenal boss believes that the Red Devils are not yet ready to compete for English football's top prize.

The Frenchman has written off the chances for the Old Trafford club for winning the Premier League this year.

Four gameweeks gone, and thirty four more to go but Arsene Wenger already believes that the Red Devils are no longer in contention for the title.

Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United have won once, drawn twice and lost once but Wenger is sceptical about the current squad.

"When you see Man Utd, they are one of the examples where there is a potential there,' he told beIN Sports.

"But they have not found a collective way."

"Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man United, altogether. That is the question mark now".

He also feels that this squad is not a force to be reckoned with and is lacking the elements of its former glory.

"You feel there is something coming out but it's not ready. When you watch them play, they are not a candidate to fight for the championship"

He also added that the current crop of players aren't cut out for glory and aren't to be entrusted with the task of carrying on the legacy of the club which rose to it's apex under Alex Ferguson.



'Will they emulate what (Ryan) Giggs, (Paul) Scholes, (David) Beckham did over a number of years? Personally, I'm not convinced."

Manchester United will continue their season at home to am undefeated Leicester City on Saturday, in a home fixture.
