Manchester United have reportedly offered clubs in the Saudi Pro League the chance to sign Jadon Sancho and Antony, with both now deemed surplus to requirements.

The two wingers have struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford after costing United a combined £155million, with both struggling with issues both on and off the pitch.

Over a combined 148 appearances, the pair have scored just 20 goals and made nine assists.

As long as Erik ten Hag remains in the dugout, Sancho’s future at the club appears to be non-existent following their high-profile falling out, and the England international is now on loan at former club Borussia Dortmund.

Antony has been under severe criticism having failed to register a single goal contribution this season and it appears United’s patience with him is at an end.

The Evening Standard report that the Red Devils want £50m for each player and are hoping that Saudi Pro League sides will be interested in paying, just as they were for some of Chelsea and Liverpool’s big names last summer.

United have struggled to sell players on in recent years and director of football John Murtough met with Saudi officials in December to build connections, with the hope that it will generate interest in their players come the summer.

Al-Ettifaq, managed by Steven Gerrard, did actually make an attempt to sign Sancho on loan last summer but the deal fell-through as they did not want to include a include a £50m obligation to buy him.

But if the 23-year-old can recapture his best form at Dortmund, it is hoped his value and attractiveness will also increase.

In addition to the two wingers, there is interest from Saudi for fellow United players Casemiro and Raphael Varane, whose futures at Old Trafford are very uncertain.

Varane’s contract expires at the end of the season, though it is said the defender is hopeful of renewing his deal, while it has been reported that the club are considering paying off the remainder of Casemiro’s contract.
