The Former Man United Captain has urged the Red Devils to drop interests in Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
Man United hasn’t been the most favored on the current transfer window after having failed to materialize more than one transfer deal and former club Captain, Gary Neville believes the Old Trafford side has been left behind in the recruitment sector.
Neville disclosed his frustrations on the clubs inability to land players just like other league rivals who have succeeded to bring in players with the vision of chasing after trophies in the coming season.
United’s only signing so far has been Ajax’s Van de Beek after the Dutch man completed his switch to Old Trafford in £34.1m deal that could rise to £38.5m and the former Man United Captain believes that this is not enough for United to go against teams ahead of the weekend opener.
“Like everyone else they had three months off because of coronavirus, so I don’t think it should be the case they didn’t have the resource or time to get things done,” Neville said.
“Chelsea got their business done, City have got three or four pieces done. I don’t think timing’s the issue.
“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.
“They think they can hang on but they always pay it (the asking fee) in the end.
“That’s sometimes where I think you can take control, give a hard deadline and say ‘we’re moving away from this deal’.
Jadon Sancho has been the top talk when one mentions Man United transfer business of the current summer and BVB are holding on to their £108m price region, insisting Sancho is happy at Signal Iduna Park.

“That’s been the frustration with Sancho,” Neville told the PA news agency during a TalkTalk media session.
“The fact that it’s dragged on. Just say to Dortmund ‘leave him there’ and go get another player.
“There are plenty of players around, there can’t be just one player you’re chasing.
“It is frustrating but I do think United have been better in these last couple of seasons, more careful and not making mistakes either.
“If you can’t get a deal done (for Sancho) you have to move on. You certainly have to give hard deadlines on players.”
