The winter transfer market is getting closer. The moment of the transfer window which opened in January 2022 could be a momentum for Manchester United to release several players in order to get fresh funds to look for new, more qualified players.
Manchester United has been inconsistent this season. The Red Devils often achieve bad results, such as when they faced two of their main rivals, Liverpool and Manchester City.
Not only that, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has also been eliminated in the Carabao Cup and has not yet confirmed a ticket to the last 16 of the Champions League.
The January 2022 transfer window will be an opportunity for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, if not already fired, to make another change. The Norwegian manager can bring in new ammunition to boost Manchester United’s performance.
However, previously Manchester United may need to release some players. This is in order to streamline the squad and increase transfer funds that can be used to bring in new players.
Here are five Manchester United players who could be sold in the January 2022 transfer window:
Paul Pogba is entering the final year of his contract at Old Trafford. So far, the French midfielder is still reluctant to sign a new deal.
Paul Pogba will not lack fans. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Real Madrid and Juventus continue to be linked with the Frenchman. Pogba can start negotiations with other teams from January 1, 2022.
January 2022 it could be the right time for Manchester United to get fresh funds from Paul Pogba. The Red Devils can still get big funds from the sale of Paul Pogba.
Jesse Lingard is still experiencing a difficult period under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United . The English player did not get the chance to play regularly.
Lingard looked very impressive while on loan at West Ham United in the second half of last season. He took a similar step in January.
Lingard’s contract with the Red Devils will expire at the end of the season. Instead of releasing him for free, Manchester United could sell him next winter.
Eric Bailly joined Manchester United in 2016. However, the Ivory Coast defender’s performance at Old Trafford has been plagued by injuries.
When playing, Eric Bailly also struggled to show consistent performance. After performing well against Atalanta, Bailly scored an own goal in the match against Manchester City.
Bailly got a new contract last April. However, Manchester United could sell him in the winter to bring in a better defender.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s performance has received a lot of criticism this season. However, the Englishman seems untouchable at Manchester United’s right-back position .
Diogo Dalot impressed at AC Milan last season. However, the Portuguese player has struggled to get a chance to play this season.
Diogo Dalot must play regularly so he can continue to grow. Leaving Old Trafford in January 2022 could have been taken by the player.
Donny van de Beek
Donny van de Beek’s fate at Manchester United has not changed. Until now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not given the opportunity to play regularly in the Red Devils first team.
Van de Beek has made just five appearances in all competitions this season. The Dutch midfielder has only started two of these appearances.
Van de Beek is believed to be opting to leave in January 2022. Clubs such as Newcastle United and Barcelona have been linked with the former Ajax Amsterdam man.
