What's he on now? Can't be far off this?Surprised to see the clamour for him to be sold when there's not even a sniff of what the actual fee could be. He's at his bottom value right now. Equally, I could see this as a ploy to get a new huge contract - and that's the tricky bit, we can't really be giving him a 200K a week deal now when he's been gash for so long.
Yep exactly this. Martial's not really a LW in my book, he's a CF. This will clear the LW spot for Sancho where he's best. We'll desperately need Antony if we get money for Rashford.We are not actually short of cover in his preferred left wing position and if we spent any fee on a decent RW option or an out and out forward then it is probably a win/win at this point. He has the ability to play at the top level but has not really delivered for us for some time now and probably needs a change of scenery. PSG would be a breath of fresh air and with so many bigger names there he could get out of the spotlight and focus on his game which I think he is keen to do.
Meh. Guy is hardly a footballer these days, never mind a forward of any kind of use to us. Get rid. Even if we fail to get a replacement I'd rather see Garnacho and other kids get the chance than waste more time on this dude.
Depends how much the potential fee is. But even if it is a considerable fee, you'd imagine that would almost all go towards Antony. In which case I agree with you. One in one out doesn't really help us right now.We cannot afford to sell him at the moment. Had the window gone the way we all expected then this would have been perfect.
A player isn't deadwood if they are starters with nobody remotely close to their level in the squad... And no, 18 year old Garnacho is not a better footballer than Rashford at the moment.If Juve can get money for their deadwood we should be able to do the same. Please let this happen.
Think he's on 200K - but he's not worth that. Unless the club are dishing them out on a commercial value basis (a la Ronaldo). We've been terrible for so long with contracts and we've even continued that under Murtough with rewarding Bruno with a major upgrade with no need to do so.What's he on now? Can't be far off this?
Rashford was utter dogshit for the entirety of the last season, not a whole lot better the season before. Guarantee there are a handfull of players at the club that could provide far more than him.A player isn't deadwood if they are starters with nobody remotely close to their level in the squad...

We aren't crying out for left wingers. We are crying out for central strikers and right wingers. You need 2 players per position. We have 1 in each attacking position apart from centrally where we have 1 crock and 1 37 year old that wants out.If you have a forward and still crying out for one. Then it mean he is not good enough. Simple. No two ways about it.
It needs to be Gakpo plus Antony. And a striker to replace Ronaldo. If you’d asked me in May when we had time and I thought we had scouts I would have sold for 50m plus. Now? I don’t see it.Depends how much the potential fee is. But even if it is a considerable fee, you'd imagine that would almost all go towards Antony. In which case I agree with you.
