Jesse Lingard

The Englishman has been backed to end his 22-year love affair with United after failing to nail a starting role in the team.

Lingard's deal with the Red Devils is set to expire at the end of the season and will no renew it having failed to make a start in the EPL in two years.

Eric Bailly and Phil Jones

The defensive duo has endured a difficult spell at the Theatre of Dreams, with injuries taking a huge toll on them.

However, with United having just five centre-backs at their disposal, only one of Bailly and Jones can leave.

Both have courted interest from top clubs, with AC Milan said to be keen on a move for Bailly.

Juan Mata

The 33-year-old World Cup winner has not found it rosy at Old Trafford in recent months.

The Spaniard has been restricted to just three appearances since last July when he penned a 12-month contract extension.

Amad Diallo

Diallo is yet to make an impact at United despite his much-hyped £19m move from Atalanta last year.

It is now expected the teenage sensation could be allowed to leave on loan as there is no guarantee he will play in the coming months.

Feyenoord and Birmingham City are understood to be interested.

Donny van de Beek

The Dutchman's career has not worked at Man United as planned when he left Ajax 16 months ago.

The 24-year-old has found himself warming the bench much of the time under both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.

While Rangnick is keen to have him, the midfielder is looking to depart.
