Man Utd ‘considering move’ for former Arsenal star Serge Gnabry amid Antony and Jadon Sancho absences
| Last updated
Manchester United are considering a move for Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry, it has been claimed.
Erik ten Hag’s options on the flanks are seriously depleted at present with Jadon Sancho currently training away from the first team after publicly hitting back at his manager’s criticism.
Ten Hag claimed Sancho had not been selected for his squad due to his performances in training after United’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates. However, the winger subsequently took to social media to refute the claims, adding that he felt he had been “scapegoated”.
Moreover, last week Antony took a “period of absence” from United to address allegations of violence against three women, all of which he vehemently denies.
The Brazilian will not play or train until further notice.
While it is unclear how long both players will be away from first team matters, United appear to be in the market for another winger.
The attacker is set to face United in Wednesday’s Champions League group stage opener having not yet scored in four outings this term.
Gnabry, formally of Arsenal, only signed fresh terms that keep him in Bavaria until 2026, last year.
Yet Fichajes claimed that United were looking to bring in the German international for £52million, with Ten Hag and the United hierarchy said to be admirers of the player.
United are reportedly hoping to take advantage of the fact that Gnabry will only have two years left on his contract next summer.
The 28-year-old recorded 17 goals and 12 assists in 47 matches last season.
Meanwhile, Fichajes also claim United hold an interest in Atletico Madrid defender Jose Maria Gimenez.
The 28-year-old, who is in the final two years of his Atletico contract, has only played 30 minutes of football this season due to a knee injury.
Gimenez is allegedly open to the idea of an exit, as is his club amid the possibility the Uruguay international could slip down the pecking order this season.
