Manchester United supporters have shown their dissent after the club were linked with a move for former Aston Villa winger and free agent Anwar El Ghazi.

Mail Sport revealed on Monday evening that United are considering making a move for El Ghazi as a stop-gap replacement for Brazilian star Antony who has mutually agreed to stay away from the club amid allegations of domestic abuse. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Furious fans have aired their frustrations on social media as United look to bring in the 28-year-old who left PSV Eindhoven by mutual consent last week and is available to join despite the transfer window closing.

Some labelled United’s late transfer activity as ‘desperate’ given Erik ten Hag has readymade replacements in Jadon Sancho and the unproven Facundo Pellistri available.

El Ghazi last featured in the Premier League while on loan at Everton and could be handed a return to the English top-flight by United, although he also has offers from Saudi Arabia.

One supporter vented their annoyance with United’s planned move, stating: ‘United are so desperate, they’re going for an Egyptian winger hoping maybe he comes out half as good as Mo Salah.’

Another blamed United’s director of football, John Murtough for the move, adding: ‘Another Murtough madness! Some director of football. Taking us in the direction of wall to wall Eredivisie garbage!’

More straightforward replies came as another critic stated: ‘This is a sackable offence’ before one fan insisted they had been left ‘speechless’ by United’s transfer policy.

Ten Hag has largely been afforded the rub of the green by United supporters since he took over last year and won the Carabao Cup and led the club back to the Champions League during his first season.

However, another supporter insisted bringing El Ghazi in won’t go down well when others are available to step in, posting: ‘Questions over ETH if he brings in players like this despite having Pellistri here.’

Some treated the news with a jolt of humour as one comment insisted they would rather United’s goalkeeper Andre Onana rather play in attack, tweeting: ‘I’d honestly rather Onana play there.’ 

El Ghazi, who also played for Ajax, Aston Villa and Everton, watched United lose to Arsenal at the Emirates in the last game before the international break.

United are back in action against Brighton on Saturday before travelling to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
