Gary Neville is a Red Devil at heart and he proves it time and again.

The former United defender and current pundit has once again jumped on to defend his boyhood team after a journalist made a comment about Alexis Sanchez’s decision to chose between Manchester United and Manchester City.

Ok, so the journalist here in question is Guillem Balague who works for Sky Sports.

On Friday Balague tweeted out his opinions on the battle between the two Manchester clubs for the signature of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez.

He said: “On Alexis. City don’t want to spend more than £20m. They have been told the player wants to play for Pep. But United will pay Arsenal/player more. Suggesting City will not bid for him is a way to put him under pressure -Pep or money, Alexis?”

And soon as he put out this tweet, Gary Neville pounced on the fact that Balague said Sanchez would have to choose between ‘Guardiola’ and ‘money’.

And he immediately replied saying: “Is it ? Is it not City and United maybe want him and he will consider all elements in the round before making a decision ? Why is it Pep or Money ? Don’t get it?”

What followed was a battle of tweets where Balague was trying to defend his statement and Neville, on the other hand, wanted to prove that he was wrong.
