Gary Neville raises concern over Manchester United’s transfer problem

Gary Neville has been discussing Manchester United’s summer signings.

Manchester United have had a rough start to the 2023/24 Premier League campaign.

A 3-1 loss at the hands of Brighton on Saturday means the Red Devils sit 12th in the table with two wins, three losses and 10 goals conceded after five games.

Manchester United spent around £200m on seven different signings during the summer but Gary Neville has shared his concern over these signings.

Neville does not believe the players brought in have the quality to improve Manchester United in the same way a player like Declan Rice or Harry Kane would:

“I was worried at the start of the season,” he said on the latest Gary Neville Podcast.

“There was this feeling Manchester United had got their business done early in the transfer window and that was good, but I was concerned the players they had brought in wouldn’t improve them from last season.

“That would have needed a Harry Kane-type signing or Declan Rice, as an example. They didn’t have the money to do those types of signings.

“They’re not very good at the moment. There’s no hysteria. I went to the Brighton game as a fan thinking, ‘Could I be surprised?’.

“You’re always optimistic. I have never walked over that forecourt at Old Trafford and not been optimistic because that’s the job of a football fan going to any ground where you support your team.

“But 72,000 Manchester United fans in that stadium, who are informed and know Brighton and know their current team, I don’t think any of them were surprised at what they saw.

“Before the game there was that feeling of, ‘Let’s see what happens’, ‘Take a point’, those sort of comments speaking to people as you go in.”
