Manchester United planning to offload Anthony Martial, Jadon Sancho and Antony in the upcoming transfer window
The decision to invest £82 million on the Brazil international winger was pushed by Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, but he has not lived up to the high expectations placed on him and does not appear to be able to handle the demands of English football.
Sancho cost £73 million to join from Borussia Dortmund in 2021, while Martial cost roughly £62 million to arrive from Monaco in 2015 at Old Trafford. The trio’s transfer fees cost the club a total of £217 million, and it now appears likely that some or all of the trio may leave as soon as this winter.
With only four goals and two assists in 33 Premier League games since coming, Antony has had a poor season.
Sancho, another attacker, has not yet offered Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag an apology for his remarks on social media in September when he claimed that he had been singled out as the “scapegoat” for the team’s dismal start to the season. Meanwhile, Anthony Martial is expected to be seen as surplus to needs as he has dropped in Ten Hag’s hierarchy behind summer acquisition Rasmus Hojlund.
The Frenchman has done nothing in the last few years to earn his position as one of the club’s highest-paid players. In 14 appearances for the Red Devils this season in all competitions, the 27-year-old has one goal and one assist.
Rasmus Hojlund is our recent addition, and while Martial is currently second fiddle to him, the energy levels drastically decrease each time the Dane gives way to the Frenchman. Martial must leave Manchester United in January.
When it comes to the ball at his feet, Antony is nearly one-dimensional, and he doesn’t offer much if he can’t outpace a defender in pace. He hasn’t shot well, and opponents can always anticipate his movements. This season, Antony hasn’t provided much in the way of noteworthy creative contributions.

We believe that all these three players must do something to prove the haters and the manager wrong. They aren’t any ordinary players who will sit on the bench. They are paid enough to be one of the best in the world. We can now just hope that all of them find their form before the upcoming transfer window to redeem themselves and help the club in this disastrous season.
