Gary Neville hits out Manchester United's 'desperate' transfer strategy

Share

Solskjaer has been relatively quiet in the transfer market so far as United have only recently secured their first major signing with the capture of Dutch global midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax.

"Chelsea got their business done, City have got three or four pieces done".

"That's sometimes where I think you can take control, give a hard deadline and say "we're moving away from this deal".

Manchester United remain in talks to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bring-in up to three more signings this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News. "That's why I think United will pay what they have got to pay".

"It's just a thing with United that every time they go for a player in the last four, five, six years it feels they are a little bit desperate".

But former United captain Neville believes that has not been enough this summer ahead of the Premier League starting this weekend, and says the Red Devils have been left behind by Chelsea and Manchester City in the recruitment stakes.

President Trump says he will spend his own money to fund his reelection campaign if he needs to do so. Prior to Biden's visit, he hadn't campaigned in Wisconsin since October 2018.

The saga now has been dissected by Melissa Reddy, senior football correspondent for The Independent, who claims that Sancho's transfer hinges on how much United are willing to pay to sign him this summer.

Sancho emerged as the number one target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in the summer transfer window, but despite months of speculation surrounding a potential deal, the England global appears no closer to a move to Old Trafford.

"The fact that it's dragged on".

"Sancho is an incredible player, and not just because of his profile, his attributes - his intelligence and technique - he has it all", Reddy told Sky Sports.

The MEN state that David Brooks of Bournemouth has been "under consideration by United" for more than a year, but deemed him too expensive last season with the Championship side then valuing him at £50m.

Solskjaer knows he needs to sign a back-up striker either this summer of in January as Odion Ighalo's loan expires in the New Year and Man Utd will need support for Anthony Martial during the second half of the season. "You certainly have to give hard deadlines on players".
