Man United want to sell winger after Sir Jim Ratcliffe left upset by Alejandro Garnacho.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is driving an improvement of standards at Man Utd in the wake of social media antics of Alejandro Garnacho.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe made it clear that he’ll waste no time re-establishing the highest standards at Manchester United on and off the pitch. His rebuild as INEOS’ control bleeds through Old Trafford will extend into the summer transfer window. This could spell bad news for Erik ten Hag’s underperforming players.

United have undergone significant change since Ratcliffe’s £1.3billion investment for a 28 per cent stake. Omar Berrada has replaced Richard Arnold as chief executive. Meanwhile, John Murtough’s also been among the high-profile departures, making way for incoming sporting director Dan Ashworth.

Jason Wilcox will arrive as technical director, and the appointments aren’t expected to stop there. In terms of further outgoings, Ten Hag’s future beyond an underwhelming second season is uncertain. However, off-field movements are occurring with the purpose of forcing vast improvements on the pitch to return United to the world’s elite heavyweights.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe on Antony’s condition

Moreover, several players are set to be in the shop window this summer. Antony, who has registered no goals and just one assist in the Premier League this season, is one player at risk.

According to Sportitalia, United want to offload the £86m flop this summer and recoup a chunk of the fee. INEOS will be keen to address the over-inflated wage bill they inherited. Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial’s likely exits as free agents in July will help in that situation. The report adds that, no suitors have emerged for Antony after two disappointing years at Old Trafford.

Alejandro Garnacho upsets Jim Ratcliffe after his social media activity

Moreover, Ratcliffe won’t stand for failure on the pitch or ill-discipline off it. It seems clear based on his reaction to Alejandro Garnacho liking social media criticism of Ten Hag.

Garnacho seemed unhappy with being called off at half-time in Sunday’s 2-2 draw at AFC Bournemouth. Also, his manager’s post-match comments explaining why.

HITC claim that Ratcliffe was aware of the behaviour of Garnacho, which left him “unamused”. He has already backed Ten Hag over the Jadon Sancho fiasco and won’t stand for similar antics.

Although, Garnacho has snatched Antony’s right-wing spot this season. Alejandro Garnacho is starting his 30th consecutive game at the Vitality Stadium. Unlike Antony, Garnacho will have to be at the heart of INEOS’ project.
