Manchester United’s slow start to the 2020/21 season has prompted talk of further investment in the squad in January.
The Reds, who finished third in the Premier League last season, are currently in the bottom half of the table, with 10 points from seven games.
Although they have a chance to climb into the top ten when they welcome winless West Bromwich Albion to Old Trafford this weekend.
Donny van de Beek was United’s highest-profile summer arrival, but the Dutchman has struggled for game time.
Fellow new signings Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani are also waiting for an extended first-team run.
Transfer rumours however say that we may see Manchester United offload players in January before they make further additions to their first-team squad.
While United will be adding Amad Diallo Traore to their ranks in January, having already agreed a deal for the Atalanta youngster, any movement in the New Year is likely to involve players leaving Old Trafford.
That’s according to the Manchester Evening News, who report the Reds have earmarked a number of potential departures for fringe players.
Out-of-favour goalkeeper Sergio Romero is one of those who could leave in the upcoming window, while Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones may both find themselves on the way out as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attempts to streamline his squad.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah is reportedly considering his future after struggling for minutes this term.
The Dutch defender has played just twice this season, starting the league defeat against Crystal Palace and coming off the bench in United’s Champions League loss away to Istanbul Basaksehir.
