Gary Neville’s stark Man Utd warning as message sent to two players

All the latest Manchester United news and headlines as the Red Devils progress to the next round of the Carabao Cup.

Manchester United have finally returned to competitive action, and they returned with a win, no less. The Red Devils saw off Championship leaders Burnley on Wednesday night to progress to the quarter-finals, with Christian Eriksen and Marcus Rashford on target at Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag’s men will be hoping to continue their winning ways against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League the day after Boxing Day. In the meantime, United will be assessing possible targets ahead of the January transfer window, and with that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford.

Neville message

Gary Neville has urged the Glazer family to complete a full sale of the club, rather than welcoming a partial investment.

“It is out of his hands [Ten Hag], it is out of everyone’s hands. Only the Glazer family themselves can determine what happens and the bidding parties.” Neville has said, as cited by the Daily Mail.

“It has been needing this, it has been coming for the last six to eight months because of the cash requirement to rebuild or refurbish this stadium, whatever it is they decide to do, the cost of the transfer market nowadays, competing with City and the other clubs at the top. They haven’t got the money.

“They have obviously put the club into quite a bit of debt and they can’t extend that debt either. It is absolutely right and it needs to be a full sale and I think it will be. I am not sure any new party will put in money with the Glazers as a partner.”

Kompany praise

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany has praised two United stars for their role in the Red Devils’ win over his side.

“I thought that both goals were worked really well,” said Kompany. “The pass from Fernandes is perfect and for Ian (Maatsen), a young full-back, he needs to learn to anticipate these balls. Then as well, the centre-backs, the young centre-backs, are going to learn to anticipate that ball going square again. I thought there was a lot of quality in the pass. Again, the goal we conceded from Rashford was a lot of quality on the counter, and that was always going to be a danger for us.”
