Sir Jim Ratcliffe told to sell two ‘lazy’ Man United stars who are “everything wrong” with club

Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been told to sell two Manchester United stars who are “everything wrong” with the club in the summer transfer window.

Ratcliffe, 72, is now in charge at Old Trafford following the ratification of his bid, and he is planning wide-scale change.

United are expected to sell several players in the summer – with 11 names outlined in a recent article – but Ratcliffe and the United manager, whether that be Erik ten Hag or someone else, have been told two players must be included in that list.

Former Arsenal winger Perry Groves told talkSPORT that the club is ‘rotten’ and that Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford are the first players that should be sold.

Groves said: “Manchester United are still rotten. Erik ten Hag is swimming against the tide.

“If you were a new manager going in, the two players I’d get rid of straight away are Bruno Fernanes and Marcus Rashford.

“They’re everything that is wrong with Manchester United. They’re lazy.

“Bruno Fernandes is never a captain in a million years – I said that after they lost 7-0 at Anfield and he was trying to do his socks or his shinpads or whatever.”

Many supporters would be in disagreement with Groves, with Rashford and Fernandes being key players for the club in recent years.

Neither has hit form this season, though, in what has been a difficult campaign for Ten Hag and the club, and others might agree with the assessment. United are walking the tightrope with FFP concerns, and both players would be potential big value sales.
