Gary Neville, a Manchester United legend, has slammed the Glazer family for their careless handling of the club’s sale.
According to The Peoples Person, bidders such as Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani are poised to face a third round of bidding as the sale of United enters its final stages.
Prospective purchasers were later informed that they had until the end of the month to submit their final proposals.
However, the fact that the Glazers have set the stage for an additional round of bids in an effort to drive up the asking price means that United are in a race against time to be ready for the transfer window.
According to Mike Keegan of the Daily Mail, United’s operations is currently being affected by the uncertainty surrounding the ownership situation.
“Sources have disclosed that United’s planning is being hamstrung by uncertainty over who will own the club in the summer – and whether a takeover will go through in time.”
Gary Neville resorted to social media to vent his displeasure with the Glazers’ stalling their steps on the sale, jeopardising United’s recruitment plans in the process.
Neville was enraged, accusing the Glazers of greed and failing to give Ten Hag and the squad a genuine chance to compete next season.
Neville tweeted, “Taking it to a 3rd round is just classless. The market has obviously not given them the answer they want!”
“It’s like they’ve made a pact to each other that they won’t go for less than £1bn for each family member. (5 of them). If they stay in after all this it will be toxic!”
He added, “They’re making it up as they go along! Shoddy way to run a sale process.”
“They need to get out by end of May to allow the new owner a fighting chance to impact the next transfer window and get moving!”
