‘It’s worrying’: Gary Neville on why Man Utd’s lack of transfer activity so far is bad news for Ten Hag

The former Red Devils defender isn’t happy with his former club’s lack of transfer activity so far.

The Erik ten Hag era is way underway at Manchester United with the Dutchman looking to revamp the squad ahead of the new season.

United have confirmed Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Edison Cavani and Nemanja Matic will depart the club when their contracts expire on 30 June- with the latter already agreeing a move to Roma.

However, things seem to be on the slow side in terms of player recruitment at Old Trafford.

As expected, there have been multiple rumours linking the Red Devils to several players so far, but to no avail.

United’s rivals Manchester City and Liverpool have already bolstered their ranks with the signings of Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez respectively - two individuals who have proven to be prolific in front of goal.

The lack of transfer activity isn’t just concerning Red Devils fans but also their previous players, with Gary Neville calling it ‘worrying’.

Neville, who played 602 times for the club, took to Twitter to express his thoughts on this issue.

“I know early in the window but it’s worrying that United are struggling to get business done,” he tweeted.

“The others seem set and ready yet United can’t get moving. ETH [Erik ten Hag] needs his group together asap to mould them. Bringing them in late will only make it harder for him!

“Fingers crossed it happens soon!”

United have until 1 September to sign players this summer with the transfer window closing at 11pm on that day.

Ten Hag will be hoping he can guide the club to a top four finish next season after their poor performance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and then Ralf Rangnick - where they secured just 58 points - their lowest in Premier League history.
