According to ESPN, there are nine players potentially on the chopping block as we approach the closing stages of the transfer window.
In theory at least, Jesse Lingard, Brandon Williams, Anthony Martial, Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Alex Telles, Andreas Pereira, Daniel James and Axel Tuanzebe are all available for transfer.
While shifting that many fringe players in a depressed market is an unenviable task, it is one which must be attempted if United are to have a harmonious, focused group for the upcoming season.
It can be useful to have young players around the first team. The likes of Shola Shoretire, Anthony Elanga and Amad can continue their development and push the senior players harder in training.
