Gary Neville has renewed his call for the Glazer family to sell Manchester United after Premier League rivals Liverpool were reportedly put up for sale. Claims made on Monday suggest that Fenway Sports Group are prepared to listen to the offers for the Reds, prompting Neville to insist that the Glazers do the same with United. 

Neville believes it makes ‘complete sense’ for FSG to want to sell Liverpool. There is a sense that the Reds cannot compete financially with Premier League title rivals Manchester City. 

And the former right-back says some members of the Glazer family might be having similar thoughts to FSG. However, he insists they are being urged to remain in charge of United by other members of the family. 

“I said five months ago that the Manchester United owners have to sell the club because they need the cash to redevelop the training ground and stadium like what Liverpool are doing. But Chelsea’s valuation of £4.25bn will only last for 12-18 months before people realise that the club aren’t making any profit,” Neville said on Sky Sports’ The Overlap.

“It makes complete sense for the Liverpool owners to want to sell the club as they don’t have the money to compete with the other clubs in the league. 

“They’ve developed the stadium, they’ve got Jurgen Klopp as manager, and if the Chelsea valuation is now set as a benchmark for other clubs, the owners are thinking that now is a good time to get out. 

“The Glazer family at Manchester United may be thinking the same thing about getting out now as they need the cash, but the difference with them is that some members of the family don’t want to get rid of the club.”

Liverpool have retained the services of Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to oversee their takeover process. UFC star Conor McGregor has speculatively thrown his hat into the ring, despite only having a net worth of around £173m. 

Investment from Dubai could be a possible route for the Merseyside club. Dubai Investment International have been linked with a £4.3billion purchase, having previously come close to buying Liverpool in 2007. 

It would make Liverpool the third Premier League team to be backed by a sovereign state and would help them match the spending power of both Man City and Saudi Arabia-financed Newcastle.
