Old Trafford side ready to cash-in on under-performing stars to help fund summer spending spree.
Man United boss David Moyes has been promised significant funds to invest in his Old Trafford squad this summer but as part of the club’s commitment to adhere to UEFA’s FFP (Financial Fair Play) guidelines the Scot is ready to conduct a major clear-out to help make way for new signings.
CaughtOffside understands that Moyes is keen to put his stamp on the squad he inherited from former boss Sir Alex Ferguson and as well as the likely departures of veterans Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic when their contracts expire at the end of the season a number of his first team squad are to be made available to prospective buyers.
