Gary Neville calls Man Utd a ‘GRAVEYARD’ & uses Christian Eriksen as example of Glazers’ transfer effect
MANCHESTER UNITED has become a “graveyard” for players according to club legend Gary Neville.
The Red Devils experienced one of their worst-ever Premier League campaigns last season, finishing with a total of just 58 points.
And while club chiefs are hoping that the introduction of Erik ten Hag will be a catalyst for change, Neville insists more needs to be done behind the scenes.
The former defender has already slammed the Glazer family this week for taking £11million in dividends from the club, despite a huge rise in net debt.
Now he has argued that more money needs to be put into Man Utd so it can become a top club again.
In response to a tweet about Christian Eriksen, who is currently deciding between the Red Devils and Brentford as his next club, Neville wrote: “That’s why Dividends have to stop for a period.
“Every penny has to go back into the club until it becomes attractive again. The club has become a graveyard for players.
“Culturally for owners to take money out of a poorly performing business is demoralising!”
Man Utd are still yet to bring in any new players this summer.
They have been heavily linked with a swoop for soon-to-be free agent Eriksen, but the midfielder is said to be reluctant to make the switch as he would rather stay in London.
They are also struggling to seal a deal for top target Frenkie de Jong despite being interested in the Barcelona star for months.
The Spanish giants are expecting £74million for the midfielder, but the Red Devils have not yet made a suitable offer in that region.
Ajax winger Antony is another name at the top of the transfer shortlist, but the Dutch side reportedly want £69m for his services.
