Manchester United legend Gary Neville is worried over the lack of signings at the club and believes it will make it difficult for new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag.

While rivals Liverpool and Manchester City have already announced a signing this summer, Manchester United are yet to make a signing.

The club have already announced 11 players are to be released at the end of the month, including first-team stars Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic and Edinson Cavani.

Despite the number of departures this summer, Neville is surprised the club isn’t moving fast in the transfer market.

Neville has previously hit out at the club for acting slowly in the transfer window, and his fears may coming home to roost again.

“I know early in the window but it’s worrying that United are struggling to get business done,” Neville tweeted.

“The others seem set and ready yet United can’t get moving.

“ETH (Erik ten Hag) needs his group together asap to mould them. Bringing them in late will only make it harder for him! [Fingers crossed] it happens soon!”

Ten Hag has identified some of his targets as he aims to replace those departing and also add quality to the squad.

Some of Ten Hag’s transfer targets include Antony and Jurrien Timber of Ajax and Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona.

The Red Devils have also offered a two-year contract to former Tottenham Hotspur and Denmark international midfielder Christian Eriksen.

Manchester fans are becoming increasingly restless at the lack of signings after seeing Erling Haaland join Manchester City and Darwin Nunez join Liverpool.

Though United are in talks with Barcelona over making De Jong their first signing of the summer, the Reds are willing to walk away from the deal and consider other targets. 

Manchester United and Barcelona remain far apart in their valuations of De Jong.
