Manchester United are ready to let five players walk away for nothing this summer as Erik ten Hag continues to trim his squad ahead of a season back in the Champions League.
The Red Devils need just two wins from their final three games to be sure of playing in Europe’s top competition next season, while they still stand a chance of a cup double when they meet Manchester City in the FA Cup final in June.
Despite this, there is expected to be plenty of change at Old Trafford between now and the beginning of the new season, with new owners set to take charge and the squad ready to change massively.
According to the Manchester Evening News, this will involve letting five players walk away for free.
Senior pair Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe, neither of whom have appeared for the club this season, are expected to leave when their contracts expire, while young trio Ethan Galbraith, Ondrej Mastny and Charlie Wellens are all also set to depart.
Beyond that, there is due to be even more restructuring, with question marks over the future of fullback duo Alex Telles and Brandon Williams, along with Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.
Meanwhile, there is also uncertainty surrounding Anthony Martial, who is out of contract next summer, while Jack Butland, Wout Weghorst and Marcel Sabitzer will all return back to their parent clubs as things stand at the end of the current campaign.
David De Gea is set to pen a new deal, with his current contract expiring this summer, but it is unclear whether he will remain first choice following a host of high profile errors this season.
