Gary Neville Has An Interesting Theory On Man Utd's Lack Of Signings This Summer

Gary Neville Has An Interesting Theory On Man Utd's Lack Of Signings This Summer

Gary Neville thinks Manchester United have been slow in the transfer window as they are afraid of overpaying for key targets.

United fell to a 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday evening and it has resulted in fans questioning why they haven't strengthened over the summer.

Donny van de Beek remains their only signing so far and speaking on the Gary Neville Podcast, the former Red Devils captain stressed the club can't get deals done 'efficiently.'

"Because of what has happened in the last eight years, people have lost their confidence and they have now tried to go the other way in terms of, 'we can't now overpay'," he begun per Pundit Arena.

"You see Liverpool getting a player for £40 million, £25 million, you see other clubs do it, [Chelsea striker Timo] Werner is quite cheap compared to some of the prices of players you see in the market and United always seem to have to pay top dollar and the people at the club will not like that, almost as though they are easy pickings. And there is a suggestion of that.

"The problem is, they have to find a way to get deals done and they can't get deals done efficiently.

"And it is negligence not to get the squad in place, they have had six months since March when lockdown was on being able to deliberate, do zoom calls, connect with agents, move things into place."

A move for Porto left-back Alex Telles is reportedly on the cards while Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho remains a top target.

It remains to be seen if both players arrive at Old Trafford this summer but if they do, Neville thinks deals should have been finalised weeks ago.

Donny Van De Beek's Agent Slams Lack Of Manchester United Minutes After Just Three Games

"There is no excuse really for not getting your transfers done before the start of the season," the 45-year-old continued.

"They need four or five players, so to only get one done... I know Liverpool have only got theirs done in the last couple of days, but there is a feeling they are in control.

"United have got the money - if they can spend £90 million, £100 million on Sancho, they have got the money to do the deals. They have not got the quality or experience of football people within that club, it looks like a convoluted and complex structure, I'm not quite sure where the decisions lie."

His concerns are echoed by Neville who also sent a stark warning to the hierarchy.

"The people who are hearing these words and seeing them, they will not like it. But they have got to hear it, because they are not doing their jobs. The football players on the pitch did not do their jobs, the manager is going to get accused of not doing his job.

"The people in the stands whose job is to put that team on the pitch, build a football team that can win the league and the people in the stand who have been at Manchester United for eight years now have not had the ability to build a football team that can win the league.

"And that is a problem, that is your job - to build a football team to win the league and they have not been able to do it. And they have to find a way of doing it quickly as these years are going to drag on."
