Transfer Talk: Ratcliffe ready to offload Man Utd flops to fund Mbappe bid
Manchester United are preparing to sell Anthony Martial, Jadon Sancho and Antony in January to fund an audacious bid for Kylian Mbappe.
British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe is close to sealing his minority stake in the Red Devils in the next fortnight.
Martial cost United £35million when he arrived from Monaco in 2015 but has never delivered on his potential, spending part of last season on loan at Sevilla.
Sancho meanwhile has been thrown out of Erik ten Hag's first team after a public spat with the Dutch boss earlier this season.
The England international signed a five-year contract when he joined from Borussia Dortmund in 2021 but his future at Old Trafford looks bleak.
Brazilian winger Antony followed Ten Hag to Manchester from Ajax yet has only racked up 11 goal contributions in 55 appearances and has struggled to settle.
Football Insider say the funds generated will then be used to mount a pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain talisman Mbappe in 2024.
