What Man Utd’s senior players have complained about ahead of Crystal Palace clash | Football | Sport

Manchester United thought they’d challenge for the Premier League title back in the summer, especially when they landed the likes of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But that hasn’t happened, with the Red Devils winning just 16 of their 37 matches so far.

Solskjaer was sacked back in November and Rangnick has, in the time since, seen results go from bad to worse.

Now, ahead of United’s match with Palace, the Daily Mail claim senior players have ‘complained’ about the club’s transfer policy.

It’s said they believe the Red Devils have too many ‘Instagram players’ and are prioritising image over achievement.

And several players are being linked as the Red Devils gear up for a summer spending spree.

At the back, United are admirers of Pau Torres and Jurrien Timber.

Torres was on their radar 12 months ago, only for the Spain international to end up staying at Villarreal.

Yet United are keeping tabs on the centre-back, while Timber’s entourage are presently in talks over a move to Old Trafford.

In midfield, the Red Devils are set to lose Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba – who are wanted by Roma and Juventus respectively.

And Frenkie de Jong, Ruben Neves, Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips have all been linked as potential replacements for the pair.

Up top, United know they can’t rely on solely Ronaldo for goals.

So that’s led to them tracking Darwin Nunez and Antony, who have sparkled for Benfica and Ajax respectively this summer.

Meanwhile, ahead of United’s match with Palace, Rangnick has reflected on his time in the dugout.

And the German has admitted he’s failed, insisting he wishes he and his coaching staff had been able to get better results.

“I’m more than self-critical. I should have done better” said the former RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim boss.

“I expected that me and my coaching staff could have developed this team in a more sustainable kind of way.

“We couldn’t and it’s not only the players who should be blamed, it should be ourselves.

“We all could and should have done better but there are obvious reasons why it didn’t happen.”

If United beat Palace today then it will mean qualifying for the Europa League – a tournament they previously won in 2017 when Jose Mourinho was manager.
