Three Manchester United players who could easily replace Anthony Martial without costing the club anything.
MANCHESTER UNITED are preparing for Anthony Martial’s impending departure in the January transfer window.
Anthony Martial has stated that he is desperate to leave Manchester United, and Ralf Rangnick has stated that he will not stand in his way.
Who, on the other hand, could take the place of the Frenchman?
United must accept that Martial has made up his mind about leaving the club and is looking to leave before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
Sevilla, who had a loan bid rejected by the Red Devils, and Newcastle, who are looking to splash the cash this January, are both interested in the forward.
Rangnick has already stated that he will not stand in the way of the Frenchman’s plans to leave Old Trafford, despite the fact that they will not accept any offer on the table.
Finding a club that can fully afford Martial’s wages, on the other hand, may be difficult, meaning United may have to accept a lower offer than they would like.
Finding a replacement may be difficult, but Rangnick does not need to spend any money to find someone to fill the 26-year-old’s shoes.
With two coming through the academy and another on the books, United already has three stars who could step up and take over his duties.
Amad Diallo is the player in question, who joined from Atalanta in Italy for around £25 million around this time last year.
There was a huge uproar over the transfer at the time, with the Ivorian tipped to be a future superstar.
His United career has started slowly, but one early highlight was a crucial goal against AC Milan in the Europa League.
A summer loan to Feyenoord fell through, but training alongside Cristiano Ronaldo would have been invaluable to his development, and Amad could now play a bigger role in the first team in the second half of the season.
Anthony Elanga, who made his Premier League debut against Wolves last year, is another player who appears to have earned Rangnick’s trust.
With Martial out of the picture, the Sweden Under-21 international’s chances of breaking into the first team could increase.
While the winger has been tipped to leave on loan, the 19-year-old has not.
