The Dutch manager is clearly put his stamp on the under-performing squad he inherited from David Moyes and will look to offload four players who cost the Old Trafford side a combined total of £72m to sign.

Bit-part player Nani will be made available after a couple of seasons spent struggling with injuries and form, Juventus were thought to have held an interest in the Portuguese international in the past and his decent displays at the World Cup could aid a summer sale.

Another winger, Ashley Young, could also be on his way out and the Daily Mail claim a return to his former club Aston Villa is a possibility though any such deal would depend greatly on just how much of the £17m Man United paid for the England man in 2011 they’d be looking to recoup.

The attacking midfielder was a real threat in the final third during his time at Borussia Dortmund but has struggled for form since his move to the Premier League.
