Manchester United will be having a busy summer transfer window as they continue to chase big-name arrivals ahead of the coming football season.

A deal for Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane is also imminent, but the club needs to balance the books slightly by sanctioning some sales.

According to ESPN via Express, some players are now surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and if enough offers are received, some stars will leave.

Anthony Martial, Daniel James, Jesse Lingard, Brandon Williams, Diogo Dalot, Alex Telles, Phil Jones, and Andreas Pereira are all named in a possible exit list at the club.

Although it is expected that some players will leave during the summer transfer window, news that Martial is also on the possible exit list would raise one or two eyebrows.

With United lacking strength in depth in forward areas last term, ditching talented squad players like James, Lingard and Martial may leave the side short on goals if injuries strike.

Raphael Varane is edging closer to Manchester United's transfer after talks with Real Madrid is rapidly progressing.

The Frenchman has been on the radar of the Red Devils for months now as they hope to land him this summer in a bid to bolster their defence ahead of the new season.

Varane has already returned to Los Blancos, but Metro UK reports he has made it clear he intends to move to Old Trafford as he wants to experience a fresh challenge in the Premier League.

Who is Premier League's greatest captain? earlier reported that Roy Keane is the greatest captain the Premier League has ever produced according to former Man United defender Gary Neville.

The ex-English right-back answered the question asked by Sky Sports on social media with the name of his former United teammate.

Keane and Neville played together under Sir Alex Ferguson for 12 years and they won many trophies for the Red Devils.
