Kagawa, Fellaini, Zaha, Nani, Chicharito & five others set for Manchester United axe [Mirror & Express]
He’s been in the Manchester United job for less than 24 hours, but the Mirror are billing Louis van Gaal as ready to shift the deadwood out of Old Trafford.
Ten players are set to for Old Trafford exit door, say the tabloid, with Marouane Fellaini and Wilfried Zaha some of the bigger named stars set to leave.
Without any further information available on the backsheet of the paper, the narrative that’s being built is the van Gaal fundamentally believes the squad at Man United is all wrong.
Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera have joined United already this summer, but if the Mirror’s story is accurate then surely more signings must being coming for the Red Devils.
Interestingly, the Express run with the same story, and they list other players set for the chopping block.
Luis Nani, Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa, Javier Hernandez, Tom Cleverley, Anderson, Bebe and Nick Powell are all mentioned as surplus to requirements.
The backpages of the Mirror and Express on Thursday is below.
