Gary Neville has strongly criticized the Glazer family for their handling of the sale of Manchester United, calling it "unprofessional." The club has been on the market since November, but little progress has been made in the past six months. Two potential buyers, Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, have expressed continued interest and have submitted multiple offers. However, reports suggest that the Glazers are seeking a hefty £6 billion for a complete sale and might consider remaining involved in some capacity.
As the crucial summer transfer window approaches, there is growing concern among Manchester United fans that the prolonged takeover process could impact the club's ability to recruit new players. Taking note of the delays, Gary Neville, a legendary figure at Manchester United, has now directed his frustration towards the Glazer family, the club's owners, for their failure to finalize the sale promptly.
Neville took to Twitter to express his dissatisfaction, stating, "Plainly obvious the Glazer family aren't going to announce anything on the ownership until the season is closed! They've been spinning it out unprofessionally for weeks and months now. They know fan protests would have been more significant than they already have if matches were still being played, and the end result of the sale process is unpopular. Basically, any family members staying in would be deemed unacceptable by all fans. Is this why they're holding off?"[blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="500" data-dnt="true"]
