MU cleans up the squad, here are 6 players who will be released by Ralf Rangnick in January


Premier League giants, Manchester United, seem to have settled on the January transfer window. The Red Devils could also be doing a clean-up squad.

In the transfer window last summer, Manchester United signed four players. They are Tom Heaton, Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo.

As a counterweight, United loaned a number of players including Axel Tuanzebe and Andreas Pereira.

In January, Manchester United may be releasing a number of players who are not too used in Ralf Rangnick’s squad . The proceeds will be used to recruit new players.

So, who are the players United can sell in January? Quoting The Sun , here’s the full list.

Prediction: For sale

Last summer, Jesse Lingard returned to Manchester United after a wonderful loan spell at West Ham in the second half of last season.

Throughout the transfer window last summer, Lingard was linked again with West Ham. However, United chose to keep him in the squad

With his contract expiring at the end of the season, United may choose to cash in on Lingard in January.

Phil Jones
Prediction: For sale

Phil Jones actually still has a contract with United until 2023. Last year, the former Blackburn player was predicted to leave Old Trafford. However, it did not materialize.

Last summer, Manchester United again wanted to sell Jones. However, the Red Devils find it difficult to find a club that likes Jones.

The arrival of Raphael Varane last summer practically made the opportunity to play for Jones even smaller.

Anthony Martial
Prediction: For sale

Anthony Martial’s fate at Manchester United is quite sad. Had been predicted to be United’s new star, the performance of the French striker was getting here and there was decreasing.

Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Martial was unable to get regular playing opportunities. This also continues when the Red Devils have been managed by Rangnick.

Martial’s agent has stated that his client wants a new adventure, and that could happen in January.

Dean Henderson
Last season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had imposed a routine rotation policy in his team’s goalkeeper sector. Henderson also answered with an impressive performance.

Many people believe Henderson will be Manchester United’s main goalkeeper this season. However, what happened was that De Gea appeared slick under the bar.

Juan Mata
Juan Mata almost always shows quite impressive performances when he is trusted to appear. This was seen when the Spaniard played in the match against Young Boys last week.

However, age can not lie. Mata is now unable to compete with other midfielders in the Manchester United squad.

Rangnick also seems to be choosing to sell Mata in January, and bring in a new midfielder.

Amad Diallo
Prediction: On loan

Amad Diallo was one of six young players named by Ralf Rangnick in the Champions League match against Young Boys last week.

United got a number of golden opportunities in the first half, one of which was through Diallo’s action. Unfortunately, his decision to give feedback instead made the opportunity to score a goal wasted.

As a result, a loan to another club could be the best way for him.
