Man Utd owner Joel Glazer changes policy for Rangnick ahead of January transfer window

Joel Glazer has been reportedly blocked the sale of his favorite player, however, after the decline in the performance, he has finally admitted defeat.

The Manchester United owner is immensely fond of Anthony Martial, who could leave Old Trafford in January after more than six years.

United shelled out big money to sign Martial as a teenager during Louis van Gaal’s tenure back in 2015.

However, after scoring on his debut and enjoying a good first year, the Frenchman has continued to deceive with his career hampered by inconsistent performances.

Such displays meant that Jose Mourinho wanted to offload Martial, but twice saw his efforts blocked.

The Evening Standard reported that Glazer stopped the Special One selling the forward.

Obviously, the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho to the squad adds further competition with the likes of Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford also pushing for starts.

Martial’s agent has been vocal in expressing the player’s desire to leave with Sevilla currently looking like a possible destination.

Philippe Lamboley told Sky Sports News : “Anthony wishes to leave the club in January. He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon.”

Rangnick has said that he will seek clarification from the player rather than dealing with his representative via the media.

He said: “I don’t communicate with agents via the media or the press.”

“The player hasn’t spoken with me or with us about it… To be honest, what his agent has said in the media is not that much of interest.

“It should be the player. If a player wishes to go to another club, it should be the player who informs either the board or myself, whoever. I have never spoken to a player via media or agents.”
