Manchester United are currently sitting in fifth place of the Premier League table, just three points behind Chelsea in the top four race. However, the recent coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the Premier League season coming to a standstill. This unexpected halt could hamper Man United’s momentum as they were enjoying their best run of form in the league since the start of this campaign.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still needs to make sure that he can strengthen his squad by adding a few quality players when the transfer window reopens later this year. However, the Red Devils would be required to sell some of their fringe players first so that they can make enough room for new acquisitions in the off-season.
Here are four players Solskjaer should consider offloading from his squad at the end of this campaign.
The Argentine centre-back is currently playing for Estudiantes on a six-month loan deal with his contract at Old Trafford set to run out this summer. The Mancunian giants would be better off letting him leave for free rather than offer him an extension. It’s high time that the two parties parted ways considering how injury-prone Rojo has been since joining from Sporting CP back in 2014.
The English playmaker seems to have gone back to his shell under Solskjaer’s managerial stint at the Theatre of Dreams. He has failed to find consistency with his performances on the field and looks like a shadow of his former self these days.
Lingard has scored two goals and provided two assists in 35 appearances for the Red Devils this term in all competitions which goes to show how much he has struggled during this campaign. Therefore, cutting him loose will be the only logical option for Man United following Bruno Fernandes’ impact at Old Trafford since arriving in January.
Pereira has shown a few glimpses of his brilliance over the past 18 months. However, he has been far too unreliable when given a regular run of games in the Premier League. Thus, it makes a lot of sense for Solskjaer to move him on so that he can bring in someone more capable of sharing the creative workload with Fernandes in his squad.
The 24-year-old has only been involved in six goals in 37 matches for Man United this season which sums up why the Man United fans are slowing starting to lose faith in him.
On his day, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner can be a joy to watch as he has the potential to be a real game-changer in midfield. However, those days have been few and far between for Pogba following his return to Manchester. He has hardly featured for the Red Devils this season, making only eight appearances for them while earning a total of 610 minutes of playing time in the process.
Solskjaer needs to ship him out as soon as possible so that he can use the money generated from his sale to make a marquee signing this summer.
