Gary Neville, a former captain of Manchester United, has voiced his displeasure on the team’s sluggish start to the summer window following incompetence to crack a deal.
More work needed to be done than at any other major club going into the off-season, since fresh players were needed for Erik Ten Hag’s new rebuild at Old Trafford.
I know early in the window but it’s worrying that United are struggling to get business done. The others seem set and ready yet United can’t get moving. ETH needs his group together asap to mould them. Bringing them in late will only make it harder for him! 🤞🏻 it happens soon!

Even though there has been a lot of discussion about transfers, United has yet to make any new acquisitions whereas City and Liverpool were busy working on recruiting players before the window opened.
Additionally, no player sales have been made outside those of the players United will release. Concerned by United’s tardy start to the transfer window, Gary Neville has spoken out.
Neville emphasized the significance of immediately bringing in new players so that incoming manager Erik ten Hag will have them to work with while noting that it is still early in the window.
Rivals In addition to Tottenham and Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool have already added fresh players, not for the first time that the rival clubs have outclassed United in the transfer window.

With the season’s schedule officially finalized and the first batch of players reporting for preseason on June 27, the 2022–23 season is beginning to take shape. So it’s time to take things seriously.
Undoubtedly, United is working behind the scenes to try to close deals, but if the club’s top objectives are not accessible, there needs to be some flexibility and agility in the market.
For the benefit of the upcoming season, now is the time to start delivering results. Everything becomes more difficult for Ten Hag if United makes a mistake during this transfer window.
Because United needs more than just one or two new players, supporters are growing increasingly impatient with the absence of transfer activity.
