Manchester United name nine-figure price for two big-money transfer flops



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have reportedly set their price for both Jadon Sancho and Antony, with the Red Devils ready to move on the attackers.

Both Antony and Sancho have struggled in their time playing at the Theatre of Dreams, with neither managing to showcase the standard of performances expected from a Manchester United attacker.

This appears to be a belief shared by the higher-ups at United, with both Antony and Sancho now moving towards the exit door.

In a report written by Nizaar Kinsella for The Standard, it has been noted that both of the wingers have now been offered to Saudi Pro League teams, with United believed to want around £50 million for each of the attackers.

Last Summer, a sea of high-profile players would sign for Saudi Pro League clubs, yet United largely failed to join in on the act, with Alex Telles’ move to Al-Nassr marking United’s only deal with a club from the league.

If an exit is to come to fruition it will prove a quick change of fate for Antony in particular. Just fifteen months ago, the Brazilian attacker followed manager Erik ten Hag from Ajax to United.

Arriving for a fee of £82 million, Antony arrived in Manchester as United’s second most expensive signing of all time, only behind Paul Pogba.

In the months since, he has failed to repay that figure, producing just six goal contributions in the Premier League in 42 matches.

Sancho has fared slightly better, with 15 goal contributions in his 58 league matches, but currently finds himself on loan at Borussia Dortmund following a public falling out with Ten Hag.

Finally, the report also noted that Casemiro is still on the wishlist of several Saudi clubs, with United being “inclined” to sell the midfielder if an appropriate transfer fee is offered.

United legend Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly keen on reuniting with his former teammate and is demanding that Al-Nassr make a move for the Brazillian defensive midfielder.
