Five Man Utd stars facing axe in January transfer window as season flops including Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek

MANCHESTER United are targeting a January overhaul with FIVE players facing being sold by the club.

With uncertainty regarding Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's future the Ole Trafford chiefs could try and free up funds to provide any new boss with a transfer armoury.


SunSport exclusively revealed a leading agent has been instructed to contact some of the biggest names in the game, with Antonio Conte, Brendan Rodgers, Zinedine Zidane and Erik Ten Hag all shortlisted.

Italian Conte is the bookies favourite and would likely want to make a number of transfers to kickstart his reign.

That would mean moving some players on in January to prepare for a squad rebuild.

Paul Pogba

Pogba is out of contract at the end of the season and is persistently linked with a move away from the club.

The 28-year-old furiously snubbed Solskjaer after being left out of Manchester United’s line-up for their 5-0 drubbing by Liverpool.

And SunSport exclusively revealed the Frenchman has put all contract talks on hold.

Donny van de Beek

Dutchman Van de Beek has played just SIX minutes of Premier League action so far this season.

The 24-year-old has recently changed agents in a reported attempt to seal a move away from the club in January.

Serie A giants Juventus are the bookies favourite to sign Van de Beek, with Newcastle and Everton also linked.

Jesse Lingard

Lingard enjoyed a highly successful loan spell at West Ham in the second half of last season.

It led to belief among some fans that he could be back in the first team mix at Old Trafford this season.

But the 28-year-old has found minutes hard to come by and is linked with a New Year switch to mega-rich Newcastle.

Anthony Martial

Frenchman Martial has come under fire for his performances this season.

The 25-year-old has scored just once is seven outings and has been slammed as 'lightweight' by pundits.

Reports suggest United will accept bids of £40m for him in January after six-and-a-half years at the club

Dean Henderson

Finally back-up goalkeeper Henderson could be deemed surplus to requirements by Old Trafford chiefs.

The 24-year-old was due to be given the goalkeeper's shirt this season ahead of David De Gea.

But Henderson has been suffering from long Covid and unable to even make the bench on some occasions this season.

The player himself is keen on a loan move in an attempt to revive his career.
