Sir Jim Ratcliffe predicted to get £100m Manchester United wish with double Saudi transfer



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker predicts that Sir Jim Ratcliffe will have his £100 million transfer wish granted with a double Saudi Arabia transfer this summer.

Reports last week claimed that Sir Jim Ratcliffe is open to selling both Antony and Jadon Sancho this coming summer for a combined £100 million in transfers.

Antony scored his first goal of the season against Newport County on Sunday afternoon, while Sancho has had to leave the club on loan to find game-time after being banished by Erik ten Hag.

Both players have failed to live up to expectations at Old Trafford so far in their careers after the club splashed big money to bring them in, and under the new regime, they are reportedly up for sale.

Former United defender Paul Parker has explained that he could see both players ending up in the Saudi Pro League, where a number of big names have transferred to in the last year.

“I could see Antony and Sancho move to Saudi Arabia but not Casemiro,” Parker told bettingexpert.

“But Sancho and Antony… Do they have an ambition of achieving things in their career? I’m really not sure.

“Antony.. It’s a tough one. I don’t believe he will ever be good enough to play for Manchester United, and I could definitely see him moving to Saudi Arabia. But they are giving up their career by moving to Saudi Arabia. That´s a fact.”

Parker goes on to explain that he feels Sancho made the right move by going on loan to Borussia Dortmund for the remainder of the season.

“Sancho went to Dortmund, which was a clever decision by him, and that shows me that he still wants to prove people wrong.

“But if it doesn’t go as planned at Dortmund, I wouldn’t write it off. I wouldn’t write it off that he could go to Saudi Arabia. I think he could be willing to give up his career.”
