Manchester United have no intention of signing Anwar El Ghazi.
The Red Devils have suddenly had a gaping hole in their side since the start of the season. It wasn’t injuries, but off-field issues. First of all, Anthony is being investigated for assaulting his ex-girlfriend and has been excluded from training. Although Anthony is denying the allegations, the club has made it clear that they are aware of the incident and will not reinstate him to training.
Jadon Sancho is currently at odds with manager Eric ten Haag. After the Arsenal game, Van Gaal said he left Sancho out of the squad because he wasn’t performing to his satisfaction in training, to which Sancho took to social media to say he had no issues with him. The two recently met face-to-face to resolve the issue, but it’s unclear if Sancho will be back in the squad anytime soon.
As a result, El Ghazi, who is currently a free agent, has been recommended to United. According to the Telegraph, “With Anthony and Sancho uncertain, free agent El Ghazi has emerged as an option. El Ghazi, who previously played for Aston Villa and Everton, left PSV Eindhoven by mutual consent last week and could join United at the end of the transfer window. El Ghazi was recommended to United by his agents and was reportedly at the Emirates Stadium to watch the Red Devils lose 1-3 to Arsenal before the international break,” 스포츠토토 said a source close to El Ghazi’s potential arrival.
However, the Red Devils will be looking to fill the gap with players they don’t have. “United have received an offer from the agent, but are not interested in El Ghazi,” says The Athletic. United’s right winger options have been affected by the situation with Anthony Martial and Sancho, but Facundo Fellistri and Alejandro Garnacho can play in that position. Bruno Fernandes and Mason Mount are also options if needed,” he said, adding that United will not be signing El Ghazi and will instead look to solve the problem within the current squad.
As the outlet explains, Pellistri, Garnacho, Bruno, and Mount are all capable of playing on the flanks. It is also reported that United fans would rather see Pellistri given a chance than a new signing.
