Manchester United face a vital summer in the transfer market as they look to bounce back from a disappointing campaign.

Whatever happens with manager Erik ten Hag, Ineos will need to make several changes to the first-team squad to get United back into the Champions League. Sweeping changes must be made over the next few years as the club looks to return to competing for Premier League title glory again.

And The Telegraph is claiming that United will listen to offers for most first-team players this summer. Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho and Rasmus Hojlund are said to be the only players who are 'off-limits' when it comes to possible departures.

With that being said, below is a look at the players who should be leaving Old Trafford...

Marcus Rashford

It's best for both parties if the youth academy graduate moves on this summer. Rashford has not looked happy at Old Trafford all season and United have not seen the best of him for some time.

A big-money offer would also aid United massively when it comes to FFP with the forward representing pure profit due to his homegrown status. His poor form in 2023/24 may make an exit difficult, though.


It has not worked out for the Brazilian, who started brightly after scoring on his debut against Arsenal in September 2022. United are almost certain to take a significant loss on the roughly £80million fee paid for him.

But Antony has not improved after two seasons at Old Trafford with his notoriously weak right foot a major problem at the highest level. United should snap off the hand of any club that makes a decent offer.

Jadon Sancho

A player who has struggled badly since arriving at United from Borussia Dortmund. Whatever you think of Ten Hag, the way Sancho handled the situation which led to his first-team exile was poor.

The winger has also hardly enjoyed a successful loan spell at Borussia Dortmund in the second half of this season. It is time for United to cut their losses permanently.

Donny Van de Beek

There is no reason to keep the Dutch midfielder, who never settled at United when he arrived from Ajax in 2020. His lack of game time on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt is another clear indication that he is not good enough at the highest level.

A return to the Eredivisie would be a good move for Van de Beek and that may be where he can rediscover some form.


He is a player who has dropped off a cliff physically this season. Injuries and age appear to have caught up with the defensive midfielder, who opposition players have routinely bypassed with ease throughout the campaign.

The only reason to keep Casemiro would be for his experience, but the 32-year-old is likely to cost United more points next season if he stays. Don't be surprised if he makes a move to Saudi Arabia this summer with his days as a top player long gone.

Christian Eriksen

Another midfielder whose age and injuries have seen him rapidly decline. A very useful player last season but the former Tottenham star looks unlikely to rediscover his top form any time soon.

The Premier League is unforgiving and Eriksen looks physically outmatched in most games he plays with his reactions and creativity no longer effective at the top level. There really would be no point in keeping him for another campaign.
