It wasn’t an easy start to the season at Manchester United. Amidst all the controversy over a sale of the club that never materializes is the The Red Devils now find themselves in a worrying situation on the pitch as $2 million bets could be half a foot away.
The British club’s non-sporting problems are not increasing. Sancho and Antony now occupy all the covers and are in the media spotlight. and United are already seriously considering the possibility of getting rid of the two players for the immediate future.
Two pharaonic investments in a state of alarm
Antony was recently accused of domestic violence by his ex-partner. something that seriously jeopardizes his future in football’s elite. The Brazilian winger, which arrived in the summer of 2022 in exchange for 95 million euross, has been put aside by the team and is waiting for the justice system to resolve this matter.
The Carioca who has not yet “justified” the price he paid on the pitchEgo, his days at Old Trafford could be numbered in the event that he is found guilty of the acts he is accused of. Antony continues to protest his innocence, but like Mason Greenwood, The Manchester team could bet that they wouldn’t have any problems.
Another “soap opera” that runs in the offices is that of Jadon Sancho. The England winger’s relationship with Red Devils coach Erik Ten Hag‘, seems to have reached a point of no returnafter an exchange of controversial statements between the two.
Sancho, for which United paid another 85 “kilos” in 2021, he still hasn’t found the version we saw of him at Borrussia Dortmund, a destabilizing player capable of disrupting rival plans. The fans’ desperation for their player fueled this chaos even further. and Jadon would have already asked to leave the club for the winter market. Much of the British media takes it for granted.
Problem in sight
The reality is that, for one reason or another, Erik Ten Hag does not have these two players available to return from the international break.al, thus weakening the attack plan even further than it already was. The results at the start of the campaign are not They do not allow any relaxation.
Manchester United have lost two of their first four Premier League games 23/24, Curiously, the two face more direct rivals. They beat Wolves and Forest at home, both narrowly and suffering more than they should, and on the other side They lost as visitors to Arsenal and Tottenham.
The pharaonic investment United have made this summer forces them to get results against Big Six rivals. The big problem at hand for this team. The Glazers more than spent 200 million euros in transfers between Hojlund, Mount, Onana and Amrabatand they will demand to increase the domestic competition three by three before it is too late.
