Man United transfer news: Seven players who could be leaving Old Trafford

first_img 6. Will Keane – Keane scored the first goal of the Mourinho era against Wigan, but, like Wilson, he has fallen down the list of forwards at United’s disposal. At 23 years old, it is likely any move away from the club will now be a permanent one. 7 7 5. Andreas Pereira – Pereira scored against Wigan in preseason but Mourinho has made it clear he is not in his first-team plans just yet. Pereira could be sent out on loan to gain some Premier League experience, but looks like he could make an impact at the club in the future. 2. Adnan Januzaj – Januzaj was once hailed as the heir apparent to Ryan Giggs after he was handed the Welshman’s iconic no.11 jersey. However, after an unsuccessful loan spell at Borussia Dortmund, the Belgian is surplus to requirements at Old Trafford. David Moyes is keen to bring him to Sunderland and there is also interest from the likes of AC Milan, but Januzaj is eager to make his exit permanent, rather than another loan deal. 7 7 Paddy McNair and Donald Love both left Manchester United for Sunderland this week as Jose Mourinho begins to trim his first team squad ahead of the new season.Following the signing of Paul Pogba for a world record fee of £89m, Mourinho spoke of having his desired squad size of 23 players, including the goalkeepers.His next job is to cut the rest of his squad, with anyone not included in that 23 at risk of being sold.But which players not in the 23 could be on their way out of Old Trafford, either on loan or permanently?Click the arrow above, right, as talkSPORT looks at seven squad members whose time as a Red Devil could be over. 7 1. Bastian Schweinsteiger – click the arrow, right, to see who else could be on their way out of Old Trafford – Schweinsteiger has been banished from the first team and forced to train with the under 23s as Mourinho looks to move the 32-year-old on from the club. The former Germany captain has yet to speak out on the situation but Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has accused the United boss of a lack of respect. Schweinsteiger is thought to be attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs however. 7 7 3. Cameron Borthwick-Jackson – Despite a fantastic breakthrough season under Louis van Gaal, Borthwick-Jackson could be sent out on loan as it appears Mourinho favours Marcos Rojo as Luke Shaw’s back up. 7. Timothy Fosu-Mensah – Like Borthwick-Jackson. Fosu-Mensah made a positive start to his United career at right back, but he is also capable at centre back and defensive midfield. However, despite moving to the shirt number 24, he too could be sent out to gain more experience, with Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian ahead of him for the right back spot. 4. James Wilson – Wilson has not been handed a squad number this season which suggests he is on his way out of the club after being taken over in the pecking order by Marcus Rashford. Birmingham and Fulham are leading the chase for the Englishman but it could just be another loan deal after he spent the end of last season at Brighton. last_img
