Transfer News: Manchester United could sell nine players in clearout
According to transfer news from Mirror, Manchester United are likely to sell nine of their players in a squad clearout. The Red Devils are keen on a squad overhaul with a few fresh faces being on the agenda.
As the dust settles on Manchester United’s season, one can’t help but feel that it had its share of highs but those were ultimately bogged down by the frustrating lows. In a season where most of the top sides faltered at some stage, it was Manchester United’s best chance to go after the title.
There was more misery in the cup competitions, with early exits. While the Europa League was one they should have gotten their hands on, a loss means that the season can’t exactly be termed as a success.
It is clear that the squad needs additions but the fact is that several players will also need to be offloaded not just to raise cash.
It has been doing the rounds that Manchester United are looking to sign the likes of Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho, Harry Kane, Raphael Varane and Pau Torres. However, it has come to the fore that Manchester United might be looking to offload about nine players.
Nine players could leave the club in the summer
The first is David De Gea, who has fallen down the pecking order to become the second choice. The next first-team player to make way could be Nemanja Matic. The Serb has been a good servant for the club but finds himself on the periphery of the squad.
Paul Pogba has often flirted with an exit from the club. Failure to renew his deal will mean that he will have to be sold. Daniel James is a name who could face more heat if Sancho arrives. Phil Jones, who has not kicked a ball in ages, could also be on his way out.
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.

The key to United bringing in new players will depend on how much of the fringe players they are able to offload. It could well be the difference between being able to sign just that extra player who can push the side even further.
