Gary Neville ripped into Manchester United owners concerning the signing of Christian Eriksen, with the club still to agree a deal with the free agent..
The former United player criticized the Glazer family for taking cash from the club in the form of dividends while the team is having problems on the pitch, so much so that players are having concerns over joining the England 20 times champions.
New boss Erik 10 Hag wants to develop a squad which is able to mounting and maintaining a genuine charge for the best honours.
Despite leaving the likes of Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, and Paul Pogba, the club has not been able to bring in any new players yet.
United were keen on striker Darwin Nunez, however the Uruguayan instead decided to move to Liverpool. The long – standing ambitions in Eriksen and the midfielder Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona have not materialised into any deals.
Sky Sports pundit Neville took to the social media to voice his dissatisfaction and urged the Glazer family members to stop paying dividends until the team gets better on the pitch.
On Twitter, he wrote: That is the reason dividends have to stop – Every penny has to go back to the club till it becomes appealing once again. The club became a player’s graveyard. It is demoralising for owners to take money out of a poor performing business, culturally speaking.
Eriksen, 30, is a free agent after his short term deal with Brentford expired at the conclusion of the 21/22 campaign. During his short stay with Thomas Frank’s side he demonstrated precisely what he’s capable of, a series of outstanding performances helped the Bees secure the Premier League status for the upcoming season.
The Danish international joined Brentford in January following leaving Inter Milan, he left Italy after a cardioverter defibrillator device was fitted to him after his cardiac arrest in last summer’s Euro 2020 match between Denmark and Finland..
Now, it has been generally reported that Eriksen has offers from both United and Brentford on the table. The offer from United is thought to be more financially rewarding, though the player is thought to be settled in London.
The new time of year is quickly approaching and United will have to pick up the pace in case they’re to secure their place in the top flight before the season starts.
Only time will tell where Eriksen’s next stop will be.
