Manchester United are still in fifth place in the Premier League table, three points behind top-four rivals Tottenham Hotspur, with six games remaining
Manchester United has taken the first step toward restoring the club to its former glory by reaching an agreement with Ajax to recruit Erik Ten Hag, who was considered a flop for the Red Devils during the 2021-22 season.
The Ajax head coach isn't the only Ajax talent on Man United's radar right now; Brazilian winger Antony has also impressed the Red Devils' board of directors. However, if the Ajax winger decides to join Manchester United in the summer, some high-paid players will have to leave Old Trafford to make place for the Ajax wonder.
The three players Manchester United could sell to make room for Antony are listed below.
Even though Cristiano Ronaldo is still Manchester United's top scorer with 15 Premier League goals at the age of 37, the Portuguese great will turn 38 next year and will almost certainly have to leave the United squad if Antony is to have any chance of starting for the Red Devils.
Edinson Cavani is number two on the list.
After failing to agree to extend his contract at Manchester United, the Uruguayan attacker is now expected to leave in the summer.
However, while Edinson Cavani isn't considered a United flop, his departure will undoubtedly boost the chances of Man United's new target, Antony.
Anthony Martial, No. 3
Once a hero of the United States, he is now seen as an outcast.
Anthony Martial is presently on loan at Sevilla, but Sevilla is unlikely to grant him a permanent deal, thus he will most likely return to Old Trafford next season.
The Frenchman pushed a transfer away from Manchester United in January, and with Erik Ten Hag's arrival now seeming certain, Manchester United will be obliged to sell Anthony Martial to make room for the Ajax wonder.
