4 Players Manchester United need to sell

#1 Matteo Darmian
Manchester United v Derby County – Carabao Cup Third Round
Matteo Darmian has never really fit in during his spell at United. He is far too one-dimensional to be an effective full-back in the Premier League, and will likely never make the cut at United.

The Red Devils spent 13 million on the Italian defender and should look to offload him for at least 7-8 million euros. His wages being freed up would also allow more lucrative contracts for deserving youngsters.

#2 Phil Jones
Manchester United v Derby County – Carabao Cup Third Round
Phil Jones is a very odd player to say the least. Despite his reputation for making mistakes and being unreliable, the Englishman has spent as many as seven years at Old Trafford.

It is clear that Jones will never be a reliable defender for United, so it would do them good to sell him to a lower club in the Premier League. Jones is English and still only 26 years of age, so he should be able to fetch a respectable transfer fee.

#3 Ander Herrera
AFC Bournemouth v Manchester United – Premier League
Another signing of the Louis Van Gaal era, Herrera is still unsure of his own position in the side. Starting off as a deep lying midfielder, he has been utilized in the box-to-box and ball winning midfielder roles as well.

Mourinho has even played the Spaniard in defense, but Herrera simply isn’t playing at the level demanded by a top side like United. Woodward needs to sell the former Athletic Bilbao man while he still possesses a decent market value.

#4 Antonio Valencia
Manchester United v Bayer Leverkusen – UEFA Champions League
Antonio Valencia has been a great servant to United over the years. The Ecuadorian began his United career as a winger but has since been converted into a right-back.

Similar to Darmian though, while Valencia is a safe option in defense, he simply isn’t dynamic enough to be a Premier League full-back. His age has also been showing over the last season; the 33-year-old no longer has the legs to play at the top level of English football.

United are unlikely to gain a large sum through his sale, but a fee of 2-3 million can be useful. His departure would provide the opportunity that youngsters like Diogo Dalot deserve.


  1. We do not need to offload a single player atleast until Jose is gone and a new manager sanctions such moves.
    The current one is a failure. Can someone remind me what he has done in the 3 years he has been with us
