Gary Neville expressed concern upon learning that Manchester United might extend the contracts of Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof.

As the club undergoes a new era with Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s investment, critical decisions need to be made to instigate necessary changes.

Reports suggest United may not activate the contract extension option for Varane due to his high wage demands.

Instead, they are interested in renegotiating terms to retain him on a more cost-effective deal.

However, this leaves Varane free to negotiate a pre-contract with other clubs, posing a risk of losing him.

On the other hand, United has decided to activate the option in Lindelof’s contract, keeping him at the club until 2025.

Despite not fully meeting expectations since his arrival in 2017, Lindelof is considered an ‘important part of the plans’ under Erik ten Hag.

Gary Neville voiced his worry on social media, expressing concerns about United retaining both Lindelof and Varane, even if on revised terms.

Neville emphasized the need for a clean slate and sent a clear message that mediocrity won’t be tolerated.

Holding onto players for too long has been a historical issue for United, and Neville fears a repetition of such situations.
