Man United to cull as many as nine players after £40m van de Beek capture

Having captured Donny van de Beek from Ajax for a reported €40m, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t resting on his laurels where recycling his Man United squad is concerned.

It’s believed that Jadon Sancho still remains a priority target from Borussia Dortmund, as well as Dayot Upamecano from RB Leipzig.

However, in order to finance such deals, the Norwegian needs to offload a large number of his squad players.

According to The Sun, that could mean that as many as nine are sent on their way.

Those who should be looking over their shoulders are Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira, Marcus Rojo, Eric Bailly, Diogo Dalot, Juan Mata and Sergio Romero.

There are cogent arguments for them all to leave, not least financial.

However, the chance to play regular football again is surely a factor for the players themselves that overrides over the amount of remuneration.

Whether the Norwegian will be able to get anywhere close to the price he wants for each player will be seen in due course.

  1. Mark Harrison says:

    If Eric Bailly can remain injury free, he would be the defender to keep and play beside Harry Maguire; he has pace, aggression, tackling and aerial ability, all of which Lindelof is lacking in.
    Lindelof is on a bigger wage, and his inabilities were there for all to see in the Europa League semi-final. He is the one to sell.

    Axel Tuanzebe has to stay fit this coming season and prove that he can be a centre back for United; if not, this time next year he should be on the transfer list

  2. Michael says:

    I think those mentioned players should be sold as early as possible so as to bring in Jodan Sancho
    United always delays in signing and this brings out the panic buying
