Report: Manchester United Identify 5 Players That Can Leave The Club This Summer

Report: Manchester United Identify 5 Players That Can Leave The Club This Summer
By Gary Connaughton

Those who expected number of ins and outs for Manchester United early in this transfer window will have been disappointed with their activity up to this point.

Whereas the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool have already made some big money signings, United are yet to make any additions. That is far from ideal for Erik ten Hag, who would have wanted to have his business done early in order to get a full pre-season with his squad.

Of course, it is also likely that we will see a number of players leave the club. The likes of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, and Nemanja Matic (all of who have seen their contracts expire this summer) have already had their exits confirmed.

As for further outgoings, a number of possible names have now been identified.

Manchester United want to offload five players this summer

According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Manchester United have identified five players that they are willing to sell this summer. It has been suggested that Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Brandon Williams, Phil Jones, and Axel Tuanzebe are not part of the new manager's plans moving forward.

Those names are hardly surprising.

It has long been rumoured that Wan-Bissaka was not going to be a member of the squad under ten Hag, with his deficiencies on the ball making him a poor fit in the Dutchman's system. Bailly is a talented player, but his injury issues mean he cannot be relied upon to be a consistent contributor.

Jones, Tuanzebe, and Williams are all fringe players, having barely featured for the club over the last couple of seasons due to injuries and loan spells. United are likely hoping that they can bring a fee for Tuanzebe and Williams, adding to the money available to spend this summer in the process.

While it is important to trim the squad, Erik ten Hag's main focus will be on adding to his playing pool in the weeks ahead. The club continue to pursue deal for the likes of Frenkie de Jong, Jurrien Timber, and Christian Eriksen.

It should be an interesting summer ahead, although the club won't want speculation around transfer to drag on for too long.
