Coach Erik ten Hag inherited a bulky squad. It took him two transfer windows to choose the right players. However, this process is not complete. It is likely that the Dutch military leader needs another transfer period to complete the squad.
There, Ten Hag definitely had to add more personnel. In contrast, players who do not meet the requirements will have to leave Old Trafford. At that time, the 3 players below have 2 months to save their careers at Man Utd.
When spending a large amount of money on a rookie, the least Man Utd expect is that player can completely change the face of the team. However, the 23-year-old has not lived up to expectations.
With the exception of rare moments of brilliance, the versatile striker has never shown his full potential at Manchester United, often struggling with inconsistencies and inadequate fitness.
Sancho is the type of player who has scored and assisted continuously in the Bundesliga and easily slipped through the opponent’s defence. However, he became increasingly a burden at Old Trafford.
Sancho has only scored 4 goals and has 1 assist in 16 appearances in the 2022/23 Premier League. With the Red Devils in a tight top 4 race, Sancho has 10 matches left to convince Ten Hag to keep him.
Bought from AS Monaco as a new generation talent in 2015, Martial experienced countless ups and downs during his eight years with Man Utd. The 27-year-old had a pretty good performance at the start of the season when Ten Hag took over.
Unfortunately, the French international constantly experienced a series of different injuries, so he only made 6 starts in the Premier League. Martial proves to be far more valuable than Sancho, but the inevitability of injury is clearly a serious problem.
After recovering, Martial must do something remarkable at the end of the season to convince the Red Devils that he still has value for the future.
Not many Man Utd fans were thrilled when the club announced Weghorst’s loan deal from Burnley in January. Three months go by quickly, and it’s hard to say that Weghorst has made the impact that was expected.
The 30-year-old striker had too many chances to secure a permanent contract at Old Trafford, but didn’t do well enough to seize it. With only 2 goals in 20 appearances, Weghorst can be considered as one of the worst strikers that Man Utd owns in the 21st century.
Ten Hag took longer than expected to knock Weghorst out of United’s starting line-up in the win over Brentford. Perhaps that was the beginning of Weghorst’s end in Manchester.
