That’s the opinion of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino who thinks it is unlikely anyone will leave the club this afternoon.
Craig Bellamy has criticised Manchester United for their “desperate” scramble for a centre-back in the closing days of the summer transfer window.
“Do I think he will still be manager of Manchester United this time next year?”
But Neville has spectacularly suggested United could end the window with three new players.
“And can they play in a style that can keep their fans happy?” There’s [been] many rumours during the summer about players out. – England striker Harry Kane, Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen, South Korea forward Son Heung-min and England defender Kieran Trippier have all signed new contracts since May. There’s are many other examples.
“The club is doing an unbelievable effort to try to finish the stadium as soon as possible, and the lodge finished at the training ground. He’s in a hard position now, I think, but he needs to try and find a way out of it”. It’s a massive effort. If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it’s better to keep our squad together. But still, we believe we can do better and dominate more. “He lifted the trophy”.
“But it’s not just new signings that is going to be the catalyst”. Real are desperate for midfield reinforcements after Mateo Kovacic joined Chelsea on loan and they are also facing the prospect of losing Luka Modric to Inter Milan before the month is out. I just don’t know, if I was an owner, I’m thinking, ‘Well you’ve had a lot of money on these players, you don’t fancy them.
United are further hamstrung with a host of key players including Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford involved in the later stages of the World Cup limiting their pre-season preparations.
Top flight sides had previously voted to close the window before their season began, meaning that they would have to complete all deals by August 9.
A fourth successive top-four finish would represent a good outcome for Spurs, but they will be under pressure from Chelsea and Arsenal who finished fifth and sixth previous year, while big-spending West Ham could push for a top-six finish.
