Manchester United ready to part ways with Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero
According to MEN (h/t The Metro), Manchester United are planning to let go of their deadwood in the January Transfer Window.
The fact that the club are planning to cut short these three players should not really come as a surprise.
Romero remains a formidable keeper but is at best the third choice behind David de Gea and Dean Henderson. The fact that he was not permitted to leave in the summer is a poor way to repay a player who has performed when called upon.
The same cannot be said of Jones, who has failed to reach anywhere near the potential he showed as a youngster. Injuries played a major role in curtailing what could have a brilliant career.
Meanwhile, Rojo too does not appear to be in the club’s plans. He spent the second half of last season on loan and has not played for us in over a year.
Selling Rojo and Romero in January would at the very least see us recoup some fee. The duo is out of contract in the summer and could potentially leave on a free. Jones meanwhile is contracted to the club until 2023.
All three players are strong favourites to leave the club this winter. Another player considering his future at Old Trafford is Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
