Gary Neville: Man United's transfer window becoming an 'EMBARRASSMENT'

Manchester United’s transfer window is becoming an ‘EMBARRASSMENT’, blasts Gary Neville as he accuses new Old Trafford chiefs of making the same ‘old failings’ with Frenkie de Jong saga rumbling on

  • Gary Neville has hit out at the ’embarrassment’ of Man United’s transfer woes
  • Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Christian Eriksen were signed this summer 
  • But new manager Erik ten Hag’s No 1 target is Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong 
  • Chelsea are reportedly confident of beating their rivals to the Dutch midfielder
  • And club icon Neville blasted the Red Devils’ ‘old failings’ in the transfer market 

Gary Neville has insisted Manchester United’s transfer window is turning into an ’embarrassment’ in an explosive interview.

Chelsea are reportedly confident of beating their Premier League rivals to Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, despite United’s three-month pursuit of the Dutch midfielder, the top target for new manager Erik ten Hag.

And Neville, speaking on the Overlap, in partnership with Sky Bet, accused the club of making the same ‘old failings’ as the De Jong saga rumbles on.

He said: ‘There are two things about the transfer market for Manchester United that’s concerned me – one is the fact that the old instinct seems to be there, in terms of not being able to get anything over the line.

‘I think every Manchester United fan is a little bit tired of us. I said this about Sancho and it’s the same now with De Jong – it gets to the point where a signing that should be an excitement for the club becomes dragged on too long.

‘It drags on that long that actually in the end you actually lose excitement for the signing, it almost becomes a little bit of an embarrassment – and it’s still happening. So, I’m really concerned about the fact that they can’t get signings over the line still.’
