Manchester United should only spend in January if the right player is available, Gary Neville has said.
Neville recently revealed that MUFC must avoid all forms of panic buys in the tricky window.
According to him, the Red Devils cannot afford to sign for the sake of it, because they need to only sign a player that will improve the team henceforth.
He added that Leicester is a big game on Boxing Day, and if Ole should win, that will be a huge confidence booster for the squad.
His words, “If the right player is available then yes, Manchester United should go into the January transfer market because they need to improve the team. But if the player is not there, they won’t panic, they have been doing things a bit better in the market in recent years.
“What I would say is that Manchester United are a confusing bunch, two or three weeks ago you looked and this team and thought it would be a tough old season. They went out of Europe, the performance in the first half at West Ham was really poor, I was there.
“But if you look at the result at Everton, the glass is half full. The squad has been used after the performance against Leeds, where they were brilliant. Six goals against Leeds then nine changes against Everton, everyone is involved and playing.”
“Leicester is a big game on Boxing Day, but if they were to go there and win, they would really be gathering some confidence. Contrast that to a couple of weeks ago where there were questions over the manager’s job – not from me, I always thought Ole should get to the end of this season as a minimum.
“But as he walked off the pitch at Goodison with a smile on his face, the fans will be happy, the players on the pitch have a lot of quality and if they can just get into a rhythm and start to produce performances, real performances over 90 minutes, there’s a bunch of players with big character and quality. They have not moulded together yet as a team, but they are getting better, they are getting stronger, they have match-winners.”
