Manchester United and Erik ten Hag have put five players up for sale this summer as they look to further trim and overhaul their squad before the 23/24 campaign.
The Red Devils have enjoyed a strong season to date, lifting the Carabao Cup in Ten Hag’s first season in charge as well as still being in with a chance of lifting both the Europa League and FA Cup by May 2023.
But their latest defeat to Newcastle showed that there is still plenty of work still to do at Old Trafford, with midfield and attack particular areas that need strengthening this summer, and they remain in a fight to secure Champions League football next season.
As per reports, they are ready to offload a whole host of first team players to help them finance a overhaul, with Manchester United captain Harry Maguire headlining the list amid reported interest from Leicester City in a potential loan deal.
Also thought to be available are Alex Telles, Brandon Williams, Eric Bailly and Anthony Martial, all of whom have spent the season either on loan or out through injury.
Additionally, according to the Manchester Evening News, Dean Henderson is also one that could be on the chopping block this summer amid interest in adding a new goalkeeper to his ranks, with Tottenham reportedly interested in the Englishman.
It is also added that ’Ten Hag is becoming increasingly impatient with Jadon Sancho, who has started five times in the last five months’, though his departure could be harder to swallow given the hefty fee shelled out for the former Borussia Dortmund man, something that United would probably have to write off most of.
The likes of Facundo Pellistri and Anthony Elanga are reportedly set for loan moves rather than permanent departures, while Phil Jones’ prolonged stint in Manchester is likely to come to an end when his contract does.
