Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole believes that the Red Devils will be in the mix for the Premier League title again within the next few years.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side currently lie fifth in the Premier League table amid the coronavirus suspension, and the 20-time English champions were enjoying a strong spell of form before the enforced shutdown.
Cole, who amassed 121 goals for United across all competitions, thinks that his former side are taking the right steps towards challenging for Premier League glory once again.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Cole said: "There is definite progress being made. It is all about making small steps.
"When you are talking about challenging for the league in the next few years, I would genuinely like to believe so.
"It has taken Liverpool 30 years to get themselves in this position - I never want to see Man United in that position, taking 30 years to possibly win the Premier League again.
"Man United will get there - with the better players that they keep and the better players they bring in - come possibly next season or the season after that."
United have won a record 13 Premier League titles but have not tasted success in England's top flight since the 2012-13 season.
