Bye-bye: Man Utd planning to sell £115,000-a-week player; Ratcliffe has top target to replace him

Manchester United are “planning to sell” a £115,000-a-week player this summer and replace him with a Premier League ace, according to an update from journalist Rudy Galetti.

Upon his arrival, Sir Jim Ratcliffe had an immediate influence. He oversaw behind-the-scenes reforms, including the appointment of Omar Berrada as CEO, and he made it apparent that his goal was to see his childhood team win back the English football championship. As United continues to be linked to a number of players, he is expected to make sure that there are sufficient money available to make fresh additions during the summer transfer window.

After becoming a key player for the Cottagers, Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo is reportedly desired by United in the summer. Meanwhile, AC Milan star winger Rafael Leao is a high-profile alternative whose arrival might perhaps mean the end of Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford.

Additionally, Ratcliffe is rumoured to be eager to sign Joao Gomes, a midfielder for Wolves who may bring out the best in Bruno Fernandes when he wears a United shirt. This season, the Brazilian has excelled at Molineux, making 28 appearances in the Premier League and averaging 3.8 tackles per contest.

Adarabioyo is one center-back option for the Reds Devils, but Jarrad Branthwaite, a standout for Everton, might be a more well-known acquisition given rumours of a potential £80 million move to Old Trafford. Teun Koopmeiners, an Atalanta midfielder, is being examined by United as a potential upgrade over Scott McTominay as they try to close a move during the summer transfer window.

Man Utd aiming to sell £115,000-a-week ace

Manchester United is eager to transfer Antony this summer, and Michael Olise, a star player for Crystal Palace, will take his place, according to Galetti on X:

Since signing for a massive £85 million from Ajax back in 2022, Antony has been giving nothing less than what United should be seeking to accomplish in the upcoming months. This is especially true given that his £6 million annual pay equates to £115,000 every week.

He has only made 77 appearances throughout that period, scoring 10 goals (just four of which have been in the Premier League) and dishearteningly dishing out five assists.

Olise might be a better option than Antony, as his final product for Palace would be significantly more impressive than the player he could take over for the Red Devils. The Frenchman, who plays for a lower-tier squad, has six goals and three assists in 12 league games in 2023–2024; injuries have kept him from tallying an even more impressive total.

At 22, Olise still has most of his career ahead of him, too, and his quality cutting onto his left foot from the right wing could be everything that United hoped Antony would be.
