Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that Anthony Martial will be allowed to leave Manchester United this January Transfer window, as they close in on a deal for Ousmane Dembele

The France international has expressed his desire to leave United after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford, and there is talk that he could be on his way to Spanish giants Barcelona.

Catalan outlet Ara suggest Barca are keen to bolster their attack with the French forward and would be open to swapping him for Ousmane Dembele.

It is suggested Barca need to axe Dembele from their wage bill before they can register fellow signing Ferran Torres and dumping him on United would be an ideal solution, and amid the speculation, Rangnick has admitted that he will be allowed to leave

“He made it very clear that he wants to leave and, in a way, I can understand his wish to leave and to try to play more regularly somewhere else,” Rangnick said.

“But, again, it’s a question not only of what he wants to do but it’s also a question of which kind of clubs are interested in him and do they meet the demands of the club, so we have to wait and see.

“He is not injured currently so I decided to go for this group of players that were in the squad (against Burnley), so it had nothing to do with injuries.’

Look, if Martial wants to leave then let him go, it is that simple. But if fans think they are getting a quality player in the form of Dembele, they can think again. He is too injury prone and no longer the type of player that can take Europe by storm.

They would just be replacing one squad member with another if this deal actually goes ahead.
