5 players to sell to Manchester United

Harry Maguire

After the purchase of Mason Mount from Chelsea, Manchester United are limited in funds for the acquisition of a new striker. In order not to violate the rules of financial fair play, United needs to sell one of the existing players in order to legally spend 50-70 million on a new striker. We analyze the options – who to sell Manchester United this summer.

Harry Maguire

The most obvious and obvious option is the sale of the former captain and the most expensive defender in the world, Harry Maguire. He has seriously damaged his reputation at Manchester United in recent years, but is still a key defender for England and is in demand on the transfer market.

Of course, Manchester United cannot recoup the 87 million euros spent on Maguire, and even now he is already 30 years old, but earning 30-40 million is quite realistic. Maguire was interested in Paris Saint-Germain and a number of Premier League clubs – Newcastle, Everton, West Ham. Not everyone on this list has money for a still not cheap defender, and with the arrival of Luis Enrique Maguire, PSG is probably no longer interesting, but United may well sell a player that Erik ten Hag no longer counts on.

Brazilian midfielder Fred never became a key figure at Manchester United, although he worked here with four managers – Solskjaer, Mourinho, Rangnick and ten Hag. Fred got a decent playing time, but was not very stable and did not live up to the hopes that were associated with his transfer from Shakhtar.

At the same time, he is still highly appreciated by Mourinho, who wants to buy the Brazilian in Roma and restore the Matic-Fred link there, which United had under the Portuguese coach. Also interested in buying the Brazilian Fulham, who was able to revive the career of another former Shakhtar player Willian last season.

Scott McTominay

Scott McTominay was a rotation player under Mourinho and Solskjaer and was appreciated by all United managers, but under ten Hague he began to play less often and already in the spring there were rumors that the Scot would change the team in the summer. McTominay’s most commonly cited destination is Newcastle, but David Moyes is also a big fan of his talent, and could see McTominay as a replacement for Arsenal’s departed Declan Rice.

McTominay is capable of becoming a major player in both Newcastle and West Ham and half of the Premier League clubs and now is the time to leave United – Solskjaer and Mourinho valued the Scot more than ten Hag and he cannot help but feel it. However, it is unlikely that both Fred and McTominay will leave immediately – in this case, Manchester United will not have the depth of the composition in the center of the field.

Anthony Martial

Anthony Martial is useful with ten Hague as a wild card, but his regular injuries do not allow him to fully reveal himself. After two excellent seasons in 2018/19 and 2019/20, Martial fell sharply and did not play regularly, but the attempt to change the championship and the team did not bring him anything good either – Martial failed to rent to Seville, having been marked by a new injury.

It is difficult to say who is now ready to acquire such a traumatic player – most of the clubs interested in the Frenchman are counting on his loan. Martial’s return to the French championship is most likely, where Monaco and Lyon are always ready to accept him, and Marseille, who loves to sign veterans, may also be interested in him.

Dean Henderson

Dean Henderson was injured on loan for Nottingham Forest, but his reputation among Premier League goalkeepers is still strong. Henderson is considered the ideal goalkeeper for an outsider, as he, like no one else, knows how to work efficiently with a heavy load on the goal. With him, Sheffield United were at one time a strong midfielder in the Premier League, and without him, they were relegated from the Premier League with Aaron Ramsdale without question.

At Manchester United, Henderson was deceived by promising him the role of number one in the 2021/22 season, and for this reason, the England goalkeeper himself would prefer to leave on the rights of a full-fledged transfer to another team. You can bargain for it for about 25 million pounds, and the same Nottingham is able to draw such an amount. The problem is that Henderson is still injured, but who better than the medics of the Foresters know all about the severity of his injury.
