“We can’t afford to wait any longer for these players to step up. It’s time to offload them and secure outstanding talents before other major clubs do.” – Manchester United unveils a plan to part ways with Antony and Jadon Sancho, and potentially Greenwood, in order to sign three exceptional wingers from France following instructions from Erik ten Hag during his recent meeting with INEOS.

Manchester United has unveiled an ambitious £100 million strategy aimed at offloading both Jadon Sancho and Antony. Sancho, who clashed with Erik ten Hag, has departed for Borussia Dortmund on loan until season-end, sans a purchase option. Antony, on the other hand, faces criticism for his lackluster performances, failing to find the net in 22 outings for Man United this season.


Considered surplus to requirements, both players have reportedly been presented to clubs in Saudi Arabia as part of United’s effort to recoup some of the £155 million invested in them. The club is allegedly seeking around £50 million for each player. Despite earlier links to clubs like Barcelona and Juventus, Sancho opted for Dortmund’s loan deal.


The 23-year-old Englishman, acquired for a hefty £73 million in 2021, has managed 12 goals in 82 appearances for United, making only three under Ten Hag this season before returning to Germany. Antony, signed for a staggering £86 million in 2022, faces an uncertain future after failing to meet expectations. Despite scoring eight goals in 44 games last season, he has yet to find the net this term.


United’s director of football, John Murtough, engaged with officials from the Saudi Pro League and Ministry of Sport during the Club World Cup in December, seeking connections to facilitate player sales in the summer. With talks underway, Sancho and Antony could potentially find themselves heading to Saudi Arabia as part of United’s restructuring efforts.
