EPL: They can’t stay fit – Agbonlahor urges Man Utd to sell five players
Former Aston Villa captain, Gabriel Agbonlahor has urged Manchester United to sell five first-team players in the upcoming transfer window in January.
Agbonlahor insisted that the players – Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Casemiro and Tyrell Malacia – cannot stay fit.
Speaking to Football Insider, Agbonlahor was asked to give his opinion on Crystal Palace star Marc Guehi’s reported links with Man United, the former England international responded:
“Guehi is going to be expensive. Palace won’t want to break up that partnership with him and [Joachim] Andersen. I like him. He’s starting for England, getting caps.
“He is strong, quick, good on the ball. But [Manchester] United have a lot of work to do in the transfer market.”
He added, “Look at that [Man United’s] defence. [Raphael] Varane is not the same, he looks like a 35-year-old. Casemiro is not the same. [Lisandro] Martinez is injury-prone. [Luke] Shaw is injury-prone. [Tyrell] Malacia is too.”
“United have got a real problem now and they need to see if those players will keep letting [Erik] Ten Hag down with their fitness. They need to move them on, go out and spend money on players who can stay fit.”
