Large sections of the Old Trafford faithful have become disenchanted with United due to what they perceive as business-minded running of the club.

The Glazer family, who tend to stay away from the limelight, have largely used United as an investment vehicle since first buying shares in 2005.

United signed Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire this season for a combined £140million, which could rise to £148m with add-ons.

The club profited from just one of the many outgoings, most of which were released players, in Romelu Lukaku’s £73m move to Inter Milan.

TRANSFER NEWS LIVE: LATEST DEADLINE DAY DEALS

The #GlazersOut movement feel United needed more investment than a £67m net spend after the club’s performance last season.

The Red Devils finished 32 points adrift of champions Manchester City last season in sixth position.

Expectations are low among the critics of the Glazer regime heading into the 2019/20 season and the #GlazersOut movement issued a statement as the transfer window closed at 5pm on Thursday.

Express Sport brings you the full statement below…

#GlazersOut statement

Today, Manchester United fans can barely sum up the strength to be surprised at yet another abysmal transfer window shepherded by Ed Woodward.

Towards the end of the season, it was implied players not good enough would be leaving the club, while top players were agitating to join.

Every fan knew we needed a substantial rebuild to reduce the 32 point gap and for us to once again compete with the best.

This anticipated rebuild was the one silver lining to an otherwise dreadful end to the season.

Today, the window closed with one of the richest clubs in desperate need of improvement spending a net £60 million.

It took Woodward a total of 3 months to negotiate 2 players, while other key areas are weakened. This is not a rebuild. This is a farce.

Fans back the team and manager 100% for what will be another difficult season, but we condemn the ongoing lies and deceit of the Glazers and the culture at the club that puts profits before ambition and success.

It’s clear to all that the Glazers do not have the club’s best interests at heart.
