- Man Utd could sell 13 players
- The Red Devils have £120m to spend
- Likely to sell Sancho, Maguire and Martial
WHAT HAPPENED? The Red Devils are reportedly willing to listen to offers for as many as 13 players from their existing squad, including stars such as Jadon Sancho, Harry Maguire, Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay, according to The Daily Mail.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Erik ten Hag is also willing to offload back-up goalkeeper Dean Henderson and defenders Alex Telles, Eric Bailly, and Brandon Williams. The Red Devils have also slapped a £20 million ($25.4m) price tag on midfielders Donny van de Beek and Fred. Anthony Elanga is another player who has been deemed surplus to requirements along with youngsters Hannibal Mejbri and Zidane Iqbal.
Man Utd are planning to make at least three additions to the squad in the striker, midfielder and goalkeeper positions but due to Financial Fair Play restrictions, the Red Devils will reportedly be able to spend only £120m. They will hope to make close to £100m from player sales which would further boost Ten Hag's budget.
ALL THE PLAYERS MAN UTD COULD SELL:
- Jadon Sancho
- Harry Maguire
- Anthony Martial
- Scott McTominay
- Alex Telles
- Eric Bailly
- Brandon Williams
- Donny van de Beek
- Anthony Elanga
- Hannibal Mejbri
- Zidane Iqbal
- Dean Henderson
AND WHAT'S MORE: Their inability to spend big this season is one of the reasons why the club are unwilling to match Chelsea's asking price of £65m for Mason Mount. With a slim budget, they could miss out on signing big names like Harry Kane from Tottenham and Victor Osimhen from Napoli.
IN THREE PHOTOS:
WHAT NEXT FOR MANCHESTER UNITED? The Red Devils have already placed three bids for Mount but all of them have been rejected by Chelsea. They will hope to seal that deal soon as Bayern Munich are now very much in the race to sign the midfielder.
