Forwards Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez are also supposedly on the list of players David Moyes could look to sell, seemingly for very different reasons.
England man Welbeck is criticized for not scoring frequently enough, indeed even after his brace against Aston Villa the powerful forward has netted four goals in total this season and managed just one goals in 27 Premier League appearances during the last campaign.
Hernandez on the other hand barely gets a look in under David Moyes, managing just three Premier League starts this season.
The Mexican may have hoped that his first team chances would improve under new management but his chances are as few and far between than they were during Sir Alex Ferguson’s time in charge.
The 25 year old may well welcome the chance to secure regular first team football elsewhere.
