Further departures are expected: substitute keeper Lee Grant and some young players are also said to be looking for new employers. In addition, the departures of Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe are firmly expected.

Squad spots urgently needed: After a disappointing Premier League season, United are in dire need of space in their bloated squad to add newcomers to the team. Frenkie de Jong (25, FC Barcelona) is currently the hottest contender for a transfer to Manchester.
