Man Utd Urged to Release 2 Players and Sign Chelsea Loanee Joao Felix


Former England forward Gabby Agbonlahor has urged Manchester United to sign Chelsea loanee Joao Felix and scrap two players. United manager Erik ten Hag is looking to bolster his squad this summer after an impressive first season at the club, which saw them win the League Cup and finish in the top four. However, up to 13 players are expected to leave Old Trafford this summer. Agbonlahor believes that United should get rid of Antony Martial and Wout Weghorst and has also questioned whether Antony and Jadon Sancho have futures in Manchester.

Agbonlahor says that Marcus Rashford has been United’s only threat going forward this season and reckons that Ten Hag should make a summer move for Portugal forward Felix. Felix has shown glimpses of his immense potential during his loan spell at Chelsea but as things stand will be returning to Atletico Madrid at the end of the season. “I really like what he’s done so far at Chelsea,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider. “I’ve seen a different side to him. At Atletico Madrid, he was playing too deep and wasn’t suited to how they play. At Chelsea, you see him getting on the ball, twisting past players – and he’s got a bit of pace as well. I really like him, but he’s got to be more clinical.”

French forward Martial has endured another frustrating season at Manchester United, only starting six Premier League games due to his battles with injury. Netherlands striker Weghorst, meanwhile, has scored just two goals in 21 appearances for the Red Devils following a January loan move from Burnley. “Antony Martial isn’t good enough, nor is Wout Weghorst – scrap them,” Agbonlahor said. “Antony and [Jadon] Sancho haven’t been great, so you’re talking about Rashford as their only threat. They need help, or it could be an embarrassing time in the Champions League for them. Joao Felix, for me, would be a good signing for them.”

Given Manchester United’s success under Ten Hag, his Old Trafford bosses will back him in the transfer market this summer. However, up to 13 players are also expected to leave the Theatre of Dreams. The club had gone five seasons without a trophy and finished just fifth last term before Ten Hag’s arrival from Ajax. He has since guided the Red Devils into the top four and to League Cup glory. “They need options if they’re back in the Champions League next season,” Agbonlahor said. “They need help, or it could be an embarrassing time in the Champions League for them.”
