An intriguing report has stated that Manchester United is open to considering bids for four prominent first-team players unless they agree to renew their contracts on lower terms.

Old Trafford is poised for a significant transformation this summer. Newly instated co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has quickly begun restructuring Manchester United’s leadership. Omar Berrada has taken over as CEO, and Jason Wilcox has replaced Darren Fletcher as technical director.

David Ornstein from The Athletic has reported that United’s attempt to hire Newcastle’s sporting director Dan Ashworth has reached arbitration after failing to agree on a compensation fee.

Manager Erik ten Hag’s future is uncertain as he faces potential dismissal, and a major overhaul of his underperforming squad is anticipated.

Recent reports have identified more than a dozen first-team players likely to leave United at the end of the season.

Sofyan Amrabat is set to return to Fiorentina after a disappointing loan period. Additionally, Tom Heaton, Brandon Williams, Jonny Evans, Raphael Varane, and Anthony Martial are all out of contract this summer.

The Manchester Evening News has reported that United is open to permanent deals for Alvaro Fernandez, Donny van de Beek, Hannibal Mejbri, Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood, and Facundo Pellistri. TEAMtalk has also indicated that Antony could be sold if the right offers come in.

ESPN recently suggested that four more players might be forced out of Old Trafford unless they agree to new contracts with reduced salaries.

The players in question are Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, and Scott McTominay.

All four are approaching the final year of their contracts. For Maguire and McTominay, United has the option to extend for an additional 12 months.

Nevertheless, the future of these players at Old Trafford is at a critical juncture. If they are unwilling to sign new contracts, selling them this summer to maximize returns would be a logical step.

ESPN added that these four players ‘could depart for suitable offers [this summer] unless they agree to new contracts on reduced terms’.
