Manchester United icon tells two players to leave Old Trafford in summer transfer window

Marcus Rashford scored his 30th goal of the season in Man United’s 4-1 win over Chelsea on Thursday night.
Dwight Yorke believes Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial should depart Man United in the summer transfer window.
Manchester United hero Dwight Yorke believes Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho should look elsewhere after feeling they have not lived up to expectations at Old Trafford.

Martial has been at United since 2015 when he made the move from Monaco. The Frenchman has gone on to make almost 300 appearances and found the back of the net 87 times.

The 27-year-old has also picked up silverware at United, including the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League. However, his time on the pitch and impact at United has fluctuated over the past eight years, as well as having a disappointing spell on loan at Sevilla in the second half of last season.

Sancho is yet to hit the heights that had been anticipated of him since his big-money transfer from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2021. He has scored 11 goals in 75 games so far in his Old Trafford career.

And Yorke, who won the Treble with United during his four-year spell at Old Trafford, believes that the pair do not have the same impact on the team in comparison to youngster Alejandro Garnacho. He feels that they would be better off looking elsewhere.

Speaking to Lord Ping, Yorke said: “You have five players to use as substitutions, but players like Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial coming on, I don’t see the fire in their belly when they come off the bench. I might be from a different breed, but the impression I get is that if something happens, those substitutes that come on will be like ‘yeah that’s great’, but they’re not coming on with a vindictiveness to get a result for the team.

“I like when Alejandro Garnacho comes off the bench because he brings the energy to the team, he has the hunger when he comes on. The other players who come on want to be fancy and have the ball to their feet, when they should be stretching the other team and trying to get in behind.

“Martial has been here for seven years now, he’s looked good in spells and was very promising. But you can’t be going on loan at the age of 26 or 27, that’s for people who are 21 years old or younger.

“Once Martial went on loan, that should have indicated that his time is done at the club, like how it did when Jesse Lingard went on loan. When you go on loan and come back, you don’t come back the same, not at that age.
