Manchester United have only signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax Amsterdam for a fee around £38m so far but have failed to land other transfer targets.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be mulling over the possibility of adding Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho to the English side’s rank, and a center-back to complement club captain Harry Maguire but efforts to secure the services of new players seem futile at the moment.
Neville, who played for Manchester United during his distinguished playing career, has urged his former side to get deals done and pointed out to the fact that the Red Devils’ rivals are doing good business in the market.
“The problem is, they have to find a way to get deals done and they can’t get deals done efficiently,” Neville said on Sky Sports.
“And it is negligence not to get the squad in place, they have had six months since March when lockdown was on being able to deliberate, do zoom calls, connect with agents, move things into place.
“There is no excuse really for not getting your transfers done before the start of the season. They need four or five players, so to only get one done… I know Liverpool have only got theirs done in the last couple of days, but there is a feeling they are in control.
“United have got the money – if they can spend £90m-100m on Sancho, they have got the money to do the deals. They have not got the quality or experience of football people within that club, it looks like a convoluted and complex structure, I’m not quite sure where the decisions lie.
“Liverpool are definite, they are precise. Look at Chelsea, they are definite and precise, Man City are, but Man Utd do not seem able to get their business done.
