Manchester United may reportedly part ways with up to 15 players before the end of the summer transfer window.
Manchester United could reportedly part ways with up to 15 players before the end of the summer transfer window.
Earlier this year, interim boss Ralf Rangnick strongly hinted that an overhaul of the first-team squad would take place ahead of 2022-23 as United attempt to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool.
Rangnick has since opted against continuing in his planned behind-the-scenes role, placing the onus on newly-appointed head coach Erik ten Hag to instigate changes to his senior crop.
As it stands, six players have already made their exit from Old Trafford with Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard among those who have departed on free transfers.
However, according to Manchester Evening News, Ten Hag may give the green light to as many as nine more outgoings before the end of August.
Right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka ended last season behind Diogo Dalot in the pecking order and has been linked with the likes of Crystal Palace and Roma.
The centre-back trio of Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe are no higher than fourth spot when it comes to selection and have all been associated with moves elsewhere.
Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia is said to be on the brink of signing for the Premier League giants, a transfer which would free up Alex Telles to make the switch to another club.
The report confirms that Brandon Williams will also be on his way out of the club, either on a permanent or temporary basis, after his loan spell at Norwich City.
United are allegedly hoping to cash in on Andreas Pereira with Fulham known to hold an interest in the playmaker who has just returned from a loan period at Flamengo.
The North-West outfit are known to be open to offers for Anthony Martial, who failed to reignite his career at Sevilla during the second half of the last campaign.
Tahith Chong also appears likely to spend 2022-23 at a different club, despite having made an impact during an injury-hit spell at Birmingham City.
As well as Malacia, United are also attempting to get a deal over the line for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who may cost £56.2m plus a number of add-ons.
If reports are to be believed, Ten Hag is keen for a reunion with Ajax winger Antony, a player with a valuation said to be somewhere in the region of £70m.
