‘Terrible’ journalist believes Manchester United should sell THREE first-team players
Jones stated that it would be a ‘priority to get them out of the football club’ and that Erik Ten Hag ‘needs to have players on board now who truly feel part of this effort’.
He also mentioned United’s ‘awful’ start to the Premier League season, which he believes cannot continue – he believes that shaking up the team might pay benefits.
What did Dean Jones have to say about the current condition of play at Manchester United?
“Donny Van de Beek, Scott McTominay, and Jadon Sancho, I would make it a priority to get them out of the football club at this stage, I just don’t see what they’re offering as squad players anymore,” Jones told GIVEMESPORT.
“You could argue perhaps McTominay could come in there but even from McTominay’s point of view, I’m not sure what his personal motivation is at the moment, because he doesn’t seem like he’s going to have an opportunity long term to even stay in the team.
“And Erik ten Hag needs to have players on board now that actually feel part of this project. It’s been a terrible start to the season, and that can’t roll on into the new year.
“So, there are some big decisions to be made, and obviously they’ve struggled to actually find these players new clubs, certainly at the valuations that they have the players held out.”
Should the aforementioned players be sold?
While both Sancho and Van De Beek are highly gifted footballers with lots of time remaining in their careers, it looks that their time at United is over.
Sancho’s relationship with Ten Hag has hit an impasse, and it appears that Van De Beek will not be allowed a fair amount of minutes at Old Trafford, even under the tutelage of a fellow Dutchman.
McTominay’s stance is a tad murkier. He has struggled this season, with his defensive responsibilities underlined, but his last-minute brace against Brentford has seen his stock increase slightly.
