Gary Neville makes three signing demand to Man Utd before end of transfer window

Gary Neville has demanded three more signings at Manchester United after the arrival of Donny van de Beek.

The Red Devils have finally got one deal over the line after running into problems throughout the summer.

The Dutchman has arrived for a fee of up to £40m from Ajax.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer held personal talks with the 23-year-old that hurried a transfer along with the Norweigan growing more frustrated.

He had been keen on getting players such as Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish early in the summer.

But various factors have prevented United from landing their targets and Neville wants to see more.

Speaking to the Webby and O’Neill YouTube channel, Neville said: "I think the left-back area is important because Luke [Shaw] has had injury problems.

"I think centre-back is critical and I do think at least one forward is important. I still think we need three or four signings.

"I’ve got a feeling they [the Manchester United board] are on it and are just not getting them over the line quite as quickly as they’d want.

"But they’re not panicking and they’re still in control I think. They’re not reacting to the market like they were a few years ago, they’re in control.

"The signings are better, they’re a better age-profile and look like they will be at the club for a long time rather than a season or two.

"I’m positive generally about United, but getting those players over the line is critical."

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has urged United chiefs to act smart in the transfer window and sign the right characters.

“We've come quite the distance since February,” Solskjaer said.
