The Red Devils have endured a difficult start to the new Premier League season

Manchester United are set to offload Antony, Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho in January, according to reports.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is set to take charge of football operations next week, having agreed to purchase a 25 per cent stake in the club.

The INEOS chief is eager to see United bring the glory days back to Old Trafford after a decade of drift following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013.

And, according to The Sun, three players are set to be shown the door when the transfer window reopens in January.

Man Utd Antony Jadon Sancho

United will listen to offers for Antony, just 18 months on from his arrival.

Big things were expected of the Brazil international when he touched down from Ajax for a massive £86million.

Antony's time at United started well enough, with the forward netting in a 3-1 win over Arsenal.

However, with no goals and no assists this season, a parting of ways now seems inevitable.

It's unclear who will swoop for Antony and whether his exit would be a loan or sale.

But clubs in Brazil have previously been linked and the Samba star may return to his homeland to rebuild his career.

United thought Martial would potentially win the Ballon d'Or one day when he was recruited from Monaco in 2015.

He was signed as a replacement for Robin van Persie, who was ruthlessly cut loose by Louis van Gaal.

Martial has produced some moments of magic in a red shirt over the past eight years.

Yet he's often blown hot and cold and Erik ten Hag's patience is wearing thin.

Martial has fallen behind Rasmus Hojlund in Ten Hag's pecking order.

And all signs point to the attacker being dumped by the club in two months' time.

A third player United are set to offload is Jadon Sancho, who has been another huge disappointment.

The England international was pursued for four years before finally arriving in 2021.

But Sancho has been a shadow of the player that previously flourished in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

He's currently exiled from the first team after publicly slamming Ten Hag in September.

Dortmund, as well as teams from China, have an interest in the England star.

The report also says Ratcliffe may revamp United's structure by sacking three key figures.

Richard Arnold's job isn't safe, with the 52-year-old attracting criticism for his handling of the Mason Greenwood situation.

John Murtough has been working on transfer business since his appointment as football director back in March 2021.

But he, too, has failed to help United end their wait for a Premier League title.

Director of football operations David Harrison is another man potentially set for the chop as well.
