The seven players who could leave Manchester United as part of clear-out

The seven players who could leave Manchester United as part of clear-out

A report from the Sun over the weekend suggests that Manchester United could part with as many as seven stars from January as part of a clear-out.

Man United’s squad

The Red Devils do have a fairly large squad with cover in basically every position.

That, however, does not necessarily mean that the cover in question is actually up to scratch or that the starting players in some spots are even good enough.

The main example of this comes in midfield. All of Fred, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic can technically be used as a defensive midfielder for the Red Devils.

However, none of them are really good enough in that role, especially when played alongside Paul Pogba, whose defensive ability is questionable.

As a result, it would probably be wise for Man United to move on some of their deadwood before bringing in more quality stars, such as a top defensive midfielder.
