Much has been made of the strained relationship between Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward at the Red Devils. One thing is clear – there have some big transfer flops during their reign and we identify the 4 players United should urgently look to sell.
Title winning sides generally boast 2 world class centre-backs in their ranks.
Jones would not make the cut in that regard. The young Englishman is known for being aggressive but that often brings a rashness to his game.
Aside from the mistake in his locker, Jones also has a poor injury record and can’t be consistently relied upon.
Being British with international experience and aged only 26, the club could still salvage a respectable transfer fee if he is sold soon.
Darmian never seemed a good fit at Old Trafford.
The club have traditions of swashbuckling football and positive, marauding full-backs but the Italian doesn’t fit that profile.
Although he boasts defensive solidity, the right-back lacks the pace and attacking threat the club requires.
Many United fans love the Spaniard’s attitude in training and on the pitch.
However, he’s always seemed more of a decent squad option than a regular starter.
Herrera’s versatility seems to satisfy the old adage – a jack of all trades, master of none.
Used as a holding midfielder, an attacking midfielder and even at centre-back, it’s clear the manager doesn’t have the confidence in him to fulfil 1 set role in midfield.
With age slowly catching up to him, United may be wise to offload him while he still retains reasonable market value.
The Ecuadorian has been a tremendous servant to the club during his time there.
He seemed destined for the exit door a few seasons ago but then re-invented himself as a right-back.
He still boasts power and a good yard of pace but lacks the dynamism an elite team requires.
At 33, he’ll only get slower and when you compare him to the world-class fullbacks Manchester City have, the gulf in quality is clear.
His exit could help United recoup a decent transfer fee and decrease the wage bill, while affording Diego Dalot an opportunity to stake his claim as the first choice right-back.
