Manchester United are looking to sell Alexis Sanchez, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard and Diogo Dalot as they want to generate funds for new signings this summer.
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has already warned fans that it may not be ‘business as usual’ in the market due to the financial repercussions of the coronavirus pandemic but they are expected to move ahead with plans to strengthen the team.
Jadon Sancho remains Solskjaer’s key target, a right winger is at the top of their list and the Red Devils are also keen on bolstering their options in defence and up front.
Seven first-team players have already left the club since Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho back in December 2018 and as many as six more players could make an exit in the coming weeks.
Alexis Sanchez, Smalling and Rojo are deemed surplus to requirements at the club and have all been put up for sale by United, according to The Telegraph
The report claims Jones, Lingard and Dalot could also leave as Solskjaer prepares to wield the axe in a major overhaul at Old Trafford.
United are currently paying £175,000-a-week towards Alexis Sanchez’s wage packet at Inter Milan.
The Red devils are desperate to remove Sanchez from the wage bill and are also looking to sell Smalling after his impressive season-long loan spell at Roma.
Lingard and Jones have done little to convince Solskjaer that they want to remain at the club and have just 11 starts between them in England this campaign.
However, Dalot has fallen down the pecking order, with Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams all impressing this season.
It’s believed Jesse Lingard could raise the highest funds from the six players for sale and clubs in England and overseas are monitoring his situation.
