Manchester United legend Gary Neville surprised the media and the fans with a shocking revelation about the English superstar Jude Bellingham after his great performance in the Clasico, where Real Madrid beat FC Barcelona with a massive 4-1 win in Saudi Arabia to lift the Spanish Super Cup.

In this sense, Neville praised the Englishman on his decision of joining Borussia Dortmund over Manchester United prior to him moving to Real Madrid last summer for €103 million, remembering that the midfielder had intense negotiations when he decided to leave Birmingham City in 2020.

In this respect, it would be worth remembering that despite Bellingham had a tour in Carrington training complex and met Sir Alex Ferguson, he decided at that time to join the German side, which Gary Neville celebrated on Sky Sports, pointing the disastrous culture of the club in the recent years as a potential reason to snub the club at this moment, which saddened the Manchester United fans on the social media.

Gary Neville argued against Manchester United

“I have spoken to players before they came here saying you'll never regret it, it's a magic football club, looking back that's pretty poor advice”, Neville told Sky Sports, adding “other players who have chosen other clubs have gone on to be really successful. You think of Jude Bellingham, Manchester United agreed a fee with Birmingham and so had Dortmund and somehow, well done to him, he chose them and he’s now one of the greatest players in the world. What would have happened if he came here? I don't know, maybe he would be a success but I'm not so sure because of the culture”.
