Manchester United is considering the possibility of signing free agent Anwar El Ghazi due to the uncertain situations surrounding Antony and Jadon Sancho, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Antony has been advised to take some time away from the Old Trafford club as an investigation into assault allegations unfolds.
Meanwhile, Sancho has had a falling out with United manager Erik ten Hag and is said to be pushing for a January departure.
It is suggested that the English international forward might have already played his final match for United following a public dispute with the Dutchman. Consequently, the club is now actively searching for an immediate replacement.
El Ghazi, who recently departed PSV Eindhoven by mutual agreement, is currently a free agent and could potentially join the Red Devils even outside the regular transfer window.
The 28-year-old former Aston Villa star was spotted at the Emirates Stadium while attending United’s recent Premier League match against Arsenal, which took place just before the current international break.
El Ghazi primarily operates as a right-wing player, and with Antony and Sancho currently unavailable, manager Ten Hag might consider pursuing a deal for the Dutch international.
Before his contract was mutually terminated, El Ghazi contributed nine goals in 33 appearances for PSV. A return to the Premier League is a possibility for him.
In the 2021-22 season, the attacker briefly played for Everton before joining PSV, but he truly made a name for himself during his time at Villa Park.
He amassed an impressive record of 26 goals and 16 assists in 119 matches for Villa, playing a vital role in their promotion to the Premier League in 2019 and helping them maintain their top-flight status over the next two seasons.
Eager to reestablish himself in the Premier League, El Ghazi could offer Man United his goal-scoring prowess, especially considering their struggles on the road in the current Premier League campaign.
