While presenting on Sky Sports, Gary Neville was asked by fellow pundit Jamie Redknapp whether the Glazers ‘won him over’ with the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The former Old Trafford full-back responded: “No, let’s be clear. No. The Glazers have done what they always do when they get out under pressure. They go and make two or three signings and it shuts people up.
“They couldn’t let Ronaldo go to Manchester City. They’ve had to step in at this point. Whether they wanted to is another matter. Nobody at Man United can complain about the three players they’ve signed this summer.”
Last season’s massive protests at Old Trafford appear to have put enough pressure on the Glazers, with the Americans bringing in Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane in the summer transfer window to at least appease the club supporters.
