Nemanja Matic insists Manchester United are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

United finished third in the recent domestic season to qualify for the Champions League after an unbeaten 14-match league run that stretched back to January.

Although United amassed the same number of points as last season (66) they moved up three places in the league table to record their second-best finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

United have not mounted a credible championship challenge since they last won it over seven years ago but Matic says the dressing room's intention is to try and bring a 21st league title to Old Trafford.

"Me, personally, I would like to win the Premier League with Manchester United," Matic told the United magazine. "I think that our club always needs to fight for the title.

"We always need to try to do the best for this club, which we are doing at the moment, and I think we cannot allow any club to win the league seven or 10 games before the season finishes, so we have to fight until the end.

"Of course, we have a young team but this cannot be an excuse. I think these young players already have a few seasons behind them playing. So, from the next season, we have to fight for the title.

"I don’t know if we’re going to win [the league] but I’m sure that we can fight until the end. That’s my personal target and I think the rest of my teammates think the same."

United finished 33 points behind runaway winners Liverpool but recent champions have made up a significant amount of points season-on-season.

Leicester added 40 points from their 2014-15 tally - when they finished 14th - in their miraculous league win in 2015-16 and Chelsea, 10th in 2015-16, went from 50 points that season to 93 points in 2016-17.
