Man Utd duo Anthony Martial and Donny van de Beek are planning to leave the club in the January transfer window, according to reports.

Van de Beek and Martial were in Michael Carrick’s first starting eleven Tuesday night as interim manager. led the Red Devils to a 2-0 win over Villarreal and gave them a safe passage to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Martial had only started three games all season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – who was fired on Sunday by Man Utd – while Van de Beek had only started two before the Norwegian’s dismissal.


Rangnick? Seriously? Is it too late to get Queiroz back?


There has been growing speculation that both players could leave in the January transfer window with both players tied to Newcastle United, which has new wealthy owners.

However, Man Utd has now agreed to a deal for Ralf Rangnick to take over the club on an interim basis until the end of the season and Martial and Van de Beek could now stay.

ESPN affirm that the couple “They have put their January transfer plans on hold before Rangnick’s imminent arrival” and “will now reassess their options.”

The report adds: “Despite interest from a host of other clubs, their preference is to find regular games at Old Trafford and the pair will see how they fit together over the next six weeks before deciding whether or not to push for a move.”

Another player currently unhappy with his playing time is Jesse Lingard, who spent a successful stint on loan at West Ham last season, whose ‘future remains unclear’ with the no-contract winger in late June.

ESPN they say Rangnick’s philosophy “fits in with Lingard’s style of play” and that “it could still give him one last chance to claim playing time.”

Solskjaer admitted last Friday that Lingard was unhappy about not having enough playing time, but could not “criticize the attitude.”

“Jesse is training very hard, very well and is ready and available for me, disappointed that I don’t play anymore. When it comes to contractual situations and conversations, I have not been in them very closely. For me, Jesse is still a big part of this team and important and brings quality to the group every day.

“All the players want to play as much as possible, with Jesse and all my players. They are working very hard, they cannot criticize the attitude when asked. Jesse has done well when he has played for us and with the games to come. is going to play an important role. “
