Paddy Kenny, a former player, is candid about the state of the Old Trafford team
Despite having great hopes, Manchester United began the new campaign by losing to Brighton at home. It is noteworthy that Yves Bissouma and Marc Cucurella, two crucial players in the summer market, have recently left the army of coach Graham Potter.
According to Paddy Kenny, Manchester United has not improved at all from the previous campaign, and if they lose Cristiano Ronaldo, things could get even worse. The former Leeds United player remarked to Football Insider:
‘Man United haven’t changed and are still the same, which is a disgrace for a club of their status.’
“I’m not sure if they can recruit some other players, but there’s still time. Everything is going to be extremely challenging.
“In my opinion, Manchester United has not changed from where they are. They are same to last season.
“I believe they are still experiencing a difficult season all the time. They will lose more of Ronaldo’s goals if he departs or plays less frequently because that is not the coach’s strategy.
“Only time will tell if the issue will get worse or not,”
The Manchester United vs. Arnautovic case was resolved quickly.
Manchester United had a disastrous start to the Premier League season, losing 1-2 to Brighton. Coach Erik ten Hag does not have many options for the attack. Anthony Martial is injured, and Cristiano Ronaldo is in poor health.
As a result, coach Ten Hag was forced to look for new players. Man United recently tried but failed to sign Antony. As a result, according to The Guardian, Manchester United immediately asked to purchase Marko Arnautovic before the summer transfer window closed in 2022.
Arnautovic is currently playing football in Serie A for Bologna. And the fact that Manchester United purchased Arnautovic is true. According to Fabrizio Romano, Man United’s initial offer of 9-10 million euros was rejected by Bologna.
However, the transaction was short-lived. Romano specifically updated: “Marko Arnautovic will not be signed by Manchester United this summer. After Bologna rejected the initial offer, the deal and negotiations will be terminated.
Arnautovic wanted to leave, but Manchester United rejected the offer. Laurie Whitwell has confirmed the information.”
Arnautovic has six years of Premier League experience. He scored 48 goals in 210 games for Stoke City and West Ham United. That is why Manchester United want Arnautovic. However, the fact that Red Devils fans were opposed to buying Arnautovic was cited as the reason why this deal was completed in less than two days.
Bologna director Marco di Vaio previously confirmed: “We are pleased with Manchester United’s interest in Arnautovic, but we have no plans to sell him. We want Arnautovic to stay in Bologna. He’s an important part of our project, as The President stated, and he’s not for sale.”
Man United suddenly paid attention to Adrien Rabiot in addition to Arnautovic. According to Romano, Man Utd coach Erik ten Hag even called the French midfielder to discuss the project. en Hag urged Manchester United to sign a central midfielder. Man United lost the first game due to poor play by Fred and Scott McTominay.
However, the agreement was also contentious. Rabiot is known for his lack of discipline and for causing havoc on the teams he plays for. According to the British press, Manchester United’s pursuit of Rabiot has caused panic in the club’s dressing room.
Coach Ten Hag always insists on acquiring only the best players. However, Arnautovic and Rabiot’s deals were diametrically opposed. If Manchester United closes the Rabiot case, Red Devils fans will undoubtedly be dissatisfied.
