Man Utd ‘to entertain offers for Antony’ as part of INEOS rebuild

Manchester United are expected to listen to offers for Antony during the summer transfer window, according to a report.

Antony has failed to win over the United faithful since making the £82m move to Old Trafford from Ajax in the summer of 2022.

Though there were real moments of promise during the Brazilian’s debut campaign – including a fine winner against Barcelona in the Europa League – he has failed to kick on this season, failing to register a single goal or assist in 20 Premier League appearances.

Off the pitch, Antony has also faced criticism amid investigations in Manchester and Sao Paulo of assaulting an ex-girlfriend.

The Manchester Evening News report that as part of new stakeholder INEOS’ plans to aggressively sell players to ease fears over meeting the Premier League’s Profit & Sustainability Rules, the club are expected to field offers for Antony this summer.

Also on the chopping block are loanees Jadon Sancho, Donny van de Beek and Hannibal Mejbri, while Anthony Martial and Tom Heaton are expected to be let go when their contracts expire this summer.

Casemiro has been the subject of interest from the Saudi Pro League, and 90min revealed last week Al Ittihad and Al Nassr are preparing offers for out-of-contract Raphael Varane.

The MEN’s report also names Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof and Facundo Pellistri as potential sellable assets given their contracts expire in 2025.

United seemingly do not intend to take up the purchase clause in their loan agreement with Fiorentina for Sofyan Amrabat and he will head back to Florence at the end of the season.

Marcus Rashford’s future is also uncertain following an alarming drop in form this season – 90min understands he is on PSG’s shortlist of Kylian Mbappe replacements – while Sir Jim Ratcliffe has revealed the club will take another look at Mason Greenwood’s situation following his loan at Getafe.

United are hopeful of shifting at least ten players during the summer transfer window.
