Manchester United are planning a summer clear-out in order to raise funds to boost their transfer kitty.
The Board has already indicated that they are willing to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with up to £80 million, but the club are hoping they can add up to £60 million from selling up to five players,
Top of the list to be sold are Jesse Lingard and Diego Dalot, both of whom have impressed whilst on loan with West Ham United and AC Milan, respectively. It is hoped that their permanent sale would rake in £40 million.
Phil Jones has not played once for United this season, but he remains an attractive proposition for a lower tier Premier League club, and he could go for around £10 million.
And Juan Mata is another one who seems destined for the Old Trafford exit door, and again he could have a £10 million price tag slapped on his head.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Sergio Romero will leave on a free contract.
