Gary Neville ‘doesn’t believe’ latest reports on ‘toxic’ Glazers calling Manchester United sale off

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has given his views on the latest twist in the Glazers’ ownership of the club.

News emerged overnight from The Daily Mail that suggests a drawn-out sale process has been called off, with the American business tycoons not getting asking price matched.

That will come as a blow to long-suffering supporters, who previously had expectations that either Sir Jim Ratcliffe or Sheikh Jassim would be in place for the summer transfer window.

A club statement in November 2022 confirmed that the Glazer family were ‘exploring strategic alternatives’ for the club, and reports claimed they were seeking a sale in excess of £6billion.

Now the Mail reports that the process is on pause until 2025, when they think they could attract up to £10bn due to a number of factors, including TV revenue and the Club World Cup taking place in the US.

Former club captain Neville has long been a critic of the Glazers’ regime, and isn’t convinced by the latest news.

Writing on Twitter, he said: “I don’t believe the Glazers not selling/doing anything story. 

“They have to do something. They’ve run out of money and the financial situation is desperate. They need investment in. 

“They’re also having a toxic impact on the club from the inside out. The negligence continues for now but I don’t think it can go on without some action on raising funds. 

“Also who would come in as a minority alongside them with the damage it would do to their reputation?”
