Excellent cleaning of the composition.
According to the Manchester Evening News, United manager Erik ten Hag wants the club to clean up the squad ruthlessly. For him, this will be a new stage in the team's restructuring.
Last summer, the club received money for only two transfers while bringing in five players simultaneously. Harry Maguire, Brandon Williams, Alex Telles, Anthony Martial, and Eric Bailly are now on the exit list unless Marseille keeps him.
The club is also expected to heed suggestions for second goaltender Dean Henderson, and Ten Hag is also known to be increasingly impatient with Jadon Sancho. The Englishman started just 5 matches in 5 months.
Newcastle is interested in Scott McTominey, but United has yet to make plans to sell him as the player is one of the youngest among the central midfielders.
Wingers Anthony Elanga and Facundo Pellistri have received credit, as has Amad Diallo, who is on loan at Sunderland.
Ten Hag wants a new striker, preferably Harry Kane, and a dynamic midfielder like Frankie de Jong or Jude Bellingham. If Maguire or Lindelof leave, you must also look at the central defender.
United plan not to renew David De Gea's contract but to sign a new one, as the 31-year-old goalkeeper earns £375,000 a week. His salary has already been cut by 25% because the club does not play in the Champions League.
The Mancunians are at risk of dropping to fifth place in the table, but the club will have a couple of matches in hand.
