Manchester United’s Entire Squad ‘For Sale’ – Just 3 Players Named as ‘Off Limits’

According to a recent report, Manchester United is prepared to sell most of their squad in a major clearance this summer, with only three players considered untouchable.

Under the leadership of co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe and incoming CEO Omar Berrada, Manchester United is gearing up for a substantial clear-out at season’s end.

With the club facing restrictions under Premier League spending rules, and having missed out on Champions League football next season, there is significant pressure to overhaul the squad. The future of many players and manager Erik ten Hag remains uncertain.

According to The Telegraph, agents and recruitment figures at rival clubs suggest that United’s new regime is open to considering most offers for players. This openness could even extend to Marcus Rashford, who might be allowed to leave once the transfer window opens.

Reports indicate that United would seriously consider any substantial offers for Rashford, especially if he wishes to leave.

Chris Wheeler of Mail Sport was the first to suggest that selling Rashford could be on the cards. Since 100% of profits from selling homegrown players can be used to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules, Rashford’s sale could align with INEOS’ strategy for stringent financial management.

Paris Saint-Germain, having previously engaged with Rashford’s representatives, remain interested and could meet his £75 million valuation and cover his significant personal terms, particularly as they seek a replacement for Kylian Mbappe.

Despite these considerations, Mail Sport reports that United still has faith in Rashford and desires his success, especially after committing to him with a lucrative new contract. However, they acknowledge that his recent decline in performance needs to be addressed.

While United isn’t aggressively seeking to offload players, they need to generate funds through sales to enhance their constrained transfer budget. The club aims to acquire a new striker, central midfielder, and right-sided center back, although their ability to pay substantial fees is limited by the £555 million spent over the last three summers.

Should United fail to qualify for any European competition next season, they will need to implement a strict sell-to-buy policy. Currently, only three players – Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho, and Rasmus Hojlund – are exempt from potential sales, with hopes to build a competitive team around this young core in the future, as reported by The Telegraph.
