Manchester United among clubs likely to reject Argentina FA’s request of releasing players early

Eric Ten Hager has stabilized United’s boat after a rocky start, with the side currently just three points behind third-placed Tottenham with one game to play.

The Red Devils are also eligible for the Europa League Round of 16, where they will clinch the title on Thursday top of their group.

The Dutch manager has done well so far with the players starting to show how the new boss wants them to play.

Argentine Football Federation bid rejected

The former Ajax manager has improved the prospects of previously underachieving stars and his new signings have done a fantastic job.

If Manchester United fans had to name their most impressive player, most would probably name centre-back Lisandro Martinez.

The Argentine has always been part of the squad and Ten Haag is unlikely to accept the Argentine Football Federation’s request to keep his players out of the final round ahead of the World Cup.

according sports station“An English club have been asked by the Argentine FA to release a player early for this month’s tournament in Qatar – and fire him immediately.

“It is understood that the club have informed other Premier League teams affected by the club-country dispute that any further demands from Argentina will be firmly resisted,” the report added.

There are six Argentina internationals on Premier League deals, with Manchester United having Martinez and academy star Alejandro Ganaggio.

Battles between clubs and national teams before the World Cup

The young winger is likely to get some playing time in the EFL Cup, an offer the Reds are unlikely to accept.

Other teams with the Argentine include Aston Villa with two stars – Emiliano Buendía and Emiliano Martinez, Spurs with Christian Romero and Brighton with Alexis McAllister.

“Argentina are believed to want their players to miss Premier League games on November 12 and 13 in order to start their preparations for the World Cup as soon as possible.”

Lionel Scaloni’s side will face the United Arab Emirates in a friendly on November 16, before their Group C opener against Saudi Arabia in Qatar six days later.

Under FIFA rules, clubs have until Monday, November 14 to release their players, but there are fears that players will declare themselves injured in the Premier League final round to avoid possible injuries.
