Shearer claims: ‘Manchester United leadership deliberately leaked’

Manchester United has deliberately leaked news about Marko Arnautovic, claims former top striker Alan Shearer. The club pulled the plug on the negotiations with Bologna, as it sounded in multiple media. Shearer thinks Manchester Uniteds club leadership was looking for support.
The news that Arnautovic was in the picture at Manchester United was not well received by a large part of the supporters. โ€œI
m convinced someone from Manchester United leaked the story, just to see what the reaction would be. The response was so bad that they had to back off. Im pretty convinced of that,โ€ says Shearer at Match of the Day.
โ€œI think that kind of sums up what Manchester United is in today. They are in a mess and it will take a lot of time and an incredible amount of money to get things straight again,โ€ says Shearer. โ€œManchester United supporters will have to be patient because of where the club stands now.โ€
โ€œOnly if we stay together will we get over it,โ€ manager Erik ten Hag said after the defeat to Brentford. โ€œOf course, the manager is the main person responsible and I am not hiding from that. I have to give faith to the players, but they have to do it themselves. Yes, we need new players and quality players. We will try to convince these players so that they will join us.โ€
