Manchester United are prepared to offload up to 11 players this summer as part of a mass exodus, reports claim. While Ralf Rangnick and the current squad are working hard to ensure they make something of United’s season, the majority of the team are also playing for their futures at the club.
That’s because, at the end of the season, United are set to focus their efforts on overhauling the squad under the supervision of a new manager.
United are prepared to go to extra lengths – including multiple sales and big spending – to ensure the new coach can build a team that fits his vision.
It is likely to require some patience but at the same time, United are now desperate for trophies and success after falling behind Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
The club have already settled for fourth place in February – a position the board would snap your hand off for – as they look to secure Champions League football for next season.

Qualification for Europe’s elite club competition would hand the Red Devils the best chance of landing top talent in the summer transfer window.
United will certainly need to plug several gaps in their squad with four players on course to depart upon the expiry of their contracts: Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata.
However, ESPN have made note of seven other stars who could also be heading for the exit door.
The report claims Anthony Martial, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Dean Henderson, Nemanja Matic, Axel Tuanzebe and Donny van de Beek could all now be off.

Martial, Tuanzebe and Van de Beek are currently enjoying loan spells away from the club.
The chance to play regularly has been a breath of fresh air and the prospect of returning to United as bit-part players is understandably of little appeal.
Meanwhile, Jones, Henderson, Matic and Bailly have spent the best part of the season on the bench despite promises of game time.
United’s swift exits from the domestic cup competitions have hampered their chances of minutes and the morale amongst the squad players is low.
