5 players Manchester United should sell this summer

With the business not looking so good for Manchester United this season, a reshuffle is something likely to happen. Injuries and inconsistency have been the most issue in United’s defect throughout the season.  

The Red Devils will play their final game of the season in the final week of May, playing Manchester City in the FA Cup final. Soon after the final, whatever the result would be, the recruitment department have to set all hands on the deck.

Here are the five players Manchester United should sell this summer

Aaron Wan-Bissaka
The former Crystal Palace full-back’s performance has seen ups and downs throughout the season with United. Lately, he was under criticism following an unpleasing performance against Arsenal, costing them a loss at Old Trafford.

United could gain around £30 million for Wan-Bissaka, enough for them to buy another potential full-back for the upcoming season. The 26-year old may have spent most of the match time everytime he plays but his injury prone might lead him to an exit door. 

Marcus Rashford
Rashford has been nothing but a ‘cancer’ to United with his annual salary of £15,600,000 but not really performing well on the pitch. With the same number of games (41) across the competition, Rasmus Hojlund scored seven more goals (15)  than himself (8).  

Summer is the best time for United to review the future of a player who was once the most admired youngster at the club. At the same time, INEOS, the current in-charge holding group for the club, can search for other players to sign if Rashford really should go.

Casemiro 
The Brazilian came with a huge excitement among the fans owing to his decorated portfolio with Real Madrid. However, Casemiro looked struggle to keep up with the culture of English football. 

Casemiro has frequently spent time in the medical room rehabbing injuries which disrupted his development for the team. With the emergence of Kobbie Maino and the promising performance by Scott McTominay, United can focus to strengthen the midfield using their British resources for the next season.  

Antony
Another signing that could not live up with the expectation from the club. Came from Ajax with £90 million, he is more of a clown among the football fans due to his antic performance. This season alone, he has not been better than a 21-year old Amad Diallo. 

Antony can only score three goals across the competition when playing from the right side in 38 appearances. In the same position, Diallo scored twice while only appearing in 11 games. The Brazilian has also started to lose faith from the fans with the performance he has shown throughout the season.

Christian Eriksen 
The Danish is known to not have his head and heart for Manchester United when he requested Erik Ten Hag to let him go. On the other end, the club are considering offloading him if the price was matched. Eriksen has only played 27 games across the competitions, scoring once. 

Apart from injuries, Eriksen seemed to have lost a place in the club after spending most of his time on the bench. With this situation, it is unlikely that he would stay for another season, which is matched with his contract that expires in the summer of 2025.
