Erik ten Hag ‘ready’ for Manchester United clear out with up to 13 players to be sold

Erik ten Hag is reportedly ‘ready’ to sanction the sale of up to 13 players in the summer as he continues his Manchester United revolution.

The Dutch manager has had a unprecedentedly successful first season at United, winning the Carabao Cup and still being in contention for the FA Cup and Europa League, all whilst running in the Premier League top four.

As such, he will be able to continue re-shaping the squad to his liking regardless of who actually owns the club come the summer as the takeover saga continues.

However, after spending over £213million this season with little to no money in player sales, the Red Devils also need to shift some players on before more signings can be made in order to trim the squad down and comply with Financial Fair Play rules.

As such, the Mail Online report that up to 13 players will be out the Old Trafford exit door in the next few months – though who they all are is not entirely clear.

Two players who do seem destined to move on are Anthony Elanga and Eric Bailly, with the former struggling for game time and attracting much interest with a dozen clubs linked with the forward.

Bailly has spent the season on loan at Marseille but while he has a buy-out clause, the French side have no interest in signing him permanently.

Other players whose futures at United seem uncertain include Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Alex Telles, Donny van de Beek, Brandon Williams and Anthony Martial.

Facundo Pellistri is set to leave on loan but Amad Diallo may well get a run in the first-team following his impressive performances at Sunderland.

Additionally, David de Gea, Phil Jones and Tom Heaton are all out of contract in the summer, with the former’s future a subject of great debate at the moment, while loanees Wout Weghorst, Marcel Sabitzer and Jack Butland could all return to their parent clubs at the end of the season.

In the meantime, United host Sevilla on Thursday night in the first-leg of their Europa League quarter-final.
