Manchester United overpaid for their summer signings, according to former Red Devils defender Gary Neville.

Louis van Gaal spent over £145m on new players in the summer transfer window as the 63-year-old sought to strengthen his underperforming squad.

Angel di Maria moved to United in a British record £59.7m deal from Real Madrid, whilst Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw cost a combined £56m.

And England coach Neville, who won eight Premier League titles with United during his career, is happy the Red Devils can still attract top players.

“In one sense I am excited because they have signed world class players,” Neville told talkSPORT.

“People jumped on the bandwagon last year and said they wouldn’t attract players, but they have a massive commercial operation.

“They have overpaid, there is no doubt about that but people will still go there.”

United face Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford on Sunday as Van Gaal aims to secure his first Premier League victory.
