Manchester United’s new stakeholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS’ board at the Mancunian club would have already set some of the master lines of their plan to take the Red Devils to the next level of football and cover the needs of the senior team currently managed by Erik Ten Hag.

In this sense, despite the Dutchman’s future at the club is still uncertain given the problems he’s facing to qualify the club for European competitions, INEOS’ board and Ratcliffe would be willing to strengthen one of the weakest areas in Manchester United’s squad, repeatedly pointed out by the manager.

According to the English journal The Telegraph, the United’s boss would have already expressed to Jim Ratcliffe the need of getting rid of one of his superstars in the team, who has clearly disappointed him during the season after having scored only a goal in 26 appearances with the Red Devils in the season.

This player would be none other than the Brazilian winger Antony dos Santos, who hasn’t responded to the manager’s expectations after arriving from Ajax for £87 million in 2022 and he would have been set as the main player to be sold in the summer by Ratcliffe, who already would have identified a Chelsea target as the Brazilian’s replacement.

What’s the player worth?

This replacement is the Crystal Palace 22-year-old British winger Michael Olise, who was about to join Chelsea last summer for the £40 million set in his release clause, and decided to stay at Palace in the last few days of the transfer market. After completing a great season with the Eagles, the winger would be now open to join a new club, and Jim Ratcliffe would have him in mind as his first potential signing in the next transfer market window.
