Tension at Old Trafford as Jesse Lingard and 10 other big players ready to leave Man United

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Jesse Lingard, Eric Bailly and Dean Henderson are reportedly among the 11 players who are seeking to leave Manchester United this year as Ralf Rangnick faces unrest in dressing room.

Due to poor performance this season in the Premier League, Ole Solskjaer was sacked at Old Trafford and Ralf Rangnick was appointed as replacement on interim capacity until end of the term.
