Manchester United could sell six players to fund Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho bids
According to Express Manchester United could offload six players in a bid to raise funds for Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho. The club are looking to clear some space and bring in some cash to bid for the summer transfer targets Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho.
Manchester United have enjoyed a very upbeat season so far. They are close to cementing second place in the Premier League and are into the finals of the Europa League. With all due respect to Villarreal, Manchester United are downright favourites to win the trophy.
While the squad is in decent shape, it could use some new faces. Players like Jadon Sancho and Harry are being linked with moves. However, that would mean selling off some players to raise funds. Six names including first-team stars, on-loan and fringe players could be on the chopping block.
The first is David De Gea, who has fallen down the pecking order to become the second choice. United are not keen on paying such exorbitant wages for a player to warm the benches.
The next first-team player to make way could be Juan Mata. The Spaniard has been a good servant for the club but largely finds himself on the periphery of the squad these days.
Among the players on loan, Jesse Lingard could fetch the most fee after his renaissance with West Ham. The likes of Andreas Pereira, Tahith Chong and Diogo Dalot are also likely to be shipped off on permanent deals.

However, certain players like the aforementioned names might have to be sold to generate funds in this pandemic affected economy.
