Manchester United’s eye-watering total squad value is ‘revealed’

 

With the exception of three players, those dismal performances including those of Marcus Rashford and Casemiro among others have led to rumors that Ratcliffe is prepared to list almost the whole team for sale.

Only three players—Alejandro Garnacho, Rasmus Hojlund, and Kobbie Mainoo—have reportedly avoided the chop, with Chris Wheeler of Mail Sport speculating that Rashford would be sold.

And despite his lackluster performances this season, Rashford tops the list of misfiring players at United, worth an astonishing £106 million, according to a survey by the CIES Football Observatory and BBC Sport.

With just four goals in this calendar year, Rashford has two assists and seven goals so far this season. Despite this, it is known that United still believes in Rashford and wants him to succeed after making a significant investment in him with a lucrative new deal.

Rasmus Hojlund, a striker who just recently joined the Red Devils for £72 million from Atalanta last summer, is the second most valuable player at £93 million. With 14 goals across all competitions this season, the 21-year-old Danish star has looked more promising than many other underwhelming youngsters.

Another of United’s more promising players, Alejandro Garnacho, is rated third at £92 million following a season in which he has contributed four assists and nine goals.

Brazilian winger Antony, who has recently returned to the first squad, is valued at £63 million, alongside Rashford, who is valued at £61 million. Full-back Diogo Dalot is valued at £61 million.

Captain Bruno Fernandes is valued at just £60 million, despite his legendary status as United’s talisman and his great achievements; rising star Kobbie Mainoo is valued at £45 million.

Anthony Martial and Raphael Varane, at £11 million each, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, at £10 million, and Christian Eriksen, at £7 million, are toward the bottom of the list.

Reports of the squad’s value comes after Ratcliffe and club director Sir Dave Brailsford were spotted at a dinner on Wednesday night amid talk of United chiefs plotting a big revamp of the team this summer.

Ratcliffe and Brailsford were seen at The Ivy in Manchester for what was described as a “working dinner” with Jean-Claude Blanc, who will take over as the club’s interim CEO until July 13.

Since taking over football operations at Old Trafford, Ratcliffe and his Ineos firm have made a lot of changes. The British tycoon has acquired a 27.7% share in the club.

Omar Berrada will become the new CEO of Man United this summer, but Brailsford, the head of sport at Ineos, has assumed a significant role in the team’s operations.

Although United hopes the former Scotland midfielder would accept a new role at the club, Jason Wilcox, who worked with Berrada at City as head of the club’s academy, has already moved from Southampton to take over as technical director from Darren Fletcher.

Although the club might not be able to spend as much as they have in the past, they are reportedly eager to recruit a new striker, central midfielder, and right-sided center defender.
