Is Martial leaving? United ‘to make transfer decision in two weeks’



The future of Anthony Martial at Man United is currently unknown, especially with the coming of England international Jadon Sancho ahead of the new season.

Reports claim he could be loaned out or sold this summer transfer window but a decision can’t be made now and Marcus Rashford could be behind the club’s stance. The England international is injured. The Red Devils cannot afford to lose Martial if he won’t be available.

But the France international has struggled at Old Trafford and, after six years at the club, he could be on his way out

Eurosport’s Dean Jones has claimed United’s plans for the striker will become clearer in the next fortnight, while Rashford’s ongoing injury problems could see the Frenchman stay put.

“Martial I guess is a potential to go out on loan as well,” Jones told The Football Terrace podcast.

“If they can’t find a buyer and they need to clear space there’s always the potential there that he could go on loan with a fee, to take up a chunk of his wages to get him out of the side.

“A lot of that is going to depend thereon Marcus Rashford talking about this shoulder surgery he might need.

“If he doesn’t need that, and will play, then I think Manchester United will look to move Martial on and potentially look at a loan if they have to.

“But if Rashford is forced to miss two months of the season they’ll probably have to keep Martial.

“I think we’ll get a clearer indication over the next two weeks over what United plan to do.

This has been predicted earlier by Arsenal legend Ray Parlour who said Martial’s time might be up and the forward should be sold this summer if the club are to win the Premier League title.

“He’s been at the club a while now, so knows what Manchester United is all about,” Parlour had said.

“Sometimes he looks disinterested with football in general.

“When he comes on the pitch, you should be raring to go, trying to make an impact if you’re coming off the bench.

“He’s the sort of player if he’s left out his confidence level goes really down – I don’t know because I don’t see him on a day-to-day basis

“It just hasn’t worked for him as a striker for Manchester United. Consistency is so important in football.

“If you’re going to be at the top of your game, you’ve got to make sure you’re putting in performances week in week out. He doesn’t do that.

“He can have a 9/10 then suddenly have two 4/10s. You aren’t going to win anything with a player like that in your team.

“As much as Man City need a striker in the summer, they’d (Man United) will be looking and thinking ‘how much money can we get for him? How can we move him on? Let’s bring someone else in and give them an opportunity to play for Manchester United’.


Legend ignores Man Utd, names six teams that can win champions league



Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

What Solskjaer said about Man Utd 2-1 defeat to Young Boys




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
