Manchester United takeover latest as Gary Neville sends firm message to Glazer family

Proposals headed up by Sheikh Jassim and British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe have yet to be accepted by the Americans and United remain at a crossroads off the field. That means supporters will have to play the waiting game for a little while longer.

Here are the latest takeover-based news and headlines from Old Trafford and beyond.

Neville calls out Glazer family on social media

United hero Gary Neville has taken a fresh swipe at the Glazer family on social media platform X.

After watching his former side slip to defeat to Brighton on Saturday afternoon, Neville took aim at the American owners. In part of his rant, the pundit said: “Oh and yes the Glazers are responsible. It&aposs how it works. You own a business and everything good and bad sits with you! They inherited the best in all areas.

“They&aposve overseen 10 years of mediocrity off the pitch and on the pitch. They set the culture of greed, ill-discipline, indecision and uncertainty that runs right through the club. It would be best if they sold the club with some speed and efficiency and allowed at least the off-the-pitch items to be corrected properly that re-set the tone and culture.

“Football is volatile so results on-pitch can be erratic and cyclical, but if the off-the-pitch stuff including the owners&apos direction and leadership are spot on it gives you a better chance to succeed on it.”

Manchester United are back in the Champions League after an impressive first season in charge for Erik ten Hag.
