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

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has criticised his old club for being 'desperate' in the transfer market and has urged them to move on from Jadon Sancho. 

Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek is the only player to have signed for United ahead of the start of the new Premier League season this weekend.

They've also been linked with a 100-million Euro move for England winger Sancho all summer but Borussia Dortmund insist the youngster will be staying with them.

“That’s been the frustration with Sancho,” Neville told the Daily Mail of the saga.

“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 you have to move on. You certainly have to give hard deadlines on players.”

Sky Sports' analyst Neville also feels that Chelsea's business in this window has shown what can be done, despite the global pandemic.

“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.

“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."
