Ten players expected to leave Manchester United in January and 2024 summer transfer window

Manchester United are expected to undergo a major squad overhaul over the next two transfer windows as soon-to-be minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is set to make necessary changes on and off the pitch after he takes control of the footballing operations.

A couple of players have already been linked with potential exits ahead of the January transfer window and next summer, and up to ten players could end up leaving in 2024.

Here are those likely to be moved on from the Old Trafford club in the coming months as manager Erik ten Hag and Ratcliffe look to recoup around £200 million in sales.

Anthony Martial

The French attacker has flattered to deceive in the Red Devils colours after some decent campaigns, with just a goal and an assist to his name in 15 games across all competitions in 2023-24.

Martial is in the last seven months of his contract at Man United, with the winter transfer window representing the last chance to get any cash from a sale.

However, that is unlikely to happen as potential suitors could be willing to wait until the summer to get him for free.

Estimated market value: £13m


The Brazil international forward joined the Red Devils from Ajax for £86m in 2022 on a five-year deal with the option of an additional year.

He has scored eight goals and bagged three assists in 56 games since then, with none this term.

Antony could be on his way out of the Theatre of Dreams next summer, but whether the Red Devils can recoup half of what they spent on him 14 months ago remains to be seen.

Estimated market value: £45m

Brandon Williams

The Man United academy graduate is currently on a season-long loan in the Championship with Ipswich Town and is unlikely to return having featured for the Red Devils just once since 2021-22.

The 23-year-old full-back is out of contract in 2025 but is not in the plans of the Dutchman and is likely to be finally sold in the summer.

Estimated market value: £5m


The Red Devils spent a whopping £60m on the 31-year-old Brazilian midfielder in August 2022, and it is a deal Ratcliffe reportedly frowned at during his visit to the club in March, citing the acquisition of the former Real Madrid star as an example of what he views as questionable recruitment.

The British billionaire is ready to sanction his sale in January amid interests from Saudi Pro League clubs, and Man United could cash in and recoup a decent fee from the Middle East moneybags for Casemiro.

Estimated market value: £45m

Donny van de Beek

The Netherlands international still has three years left on his deal at the club but already looks like a persona non grata, largely featuring in behind-the-scenes friendly games nowadays.

He has played just 21 minutes for the first team so far this term after starting just four of the ten games he appeared in last season, and his days are numbered at Old Trafford.

Estimated market value: £10m

Jadon Sancho

A January exit, either temporarily or permanently, is certain for the former Borussia Dortmund star having fallen out with Ten Hag in September.

Sancho remains banned from the first-team facilities at Carrington having refused to apologise to the manager for his social media outburst and will not be short of suitors in the coming weeks.

Estimated market value: £35m

Jonny Evans

The 35-year-old secured a one-year deal after impressing Ten Hag in training and initially earning a short-term contract in the summer upon his return to Man United.

The former Leicester City star has since made eight appearances across all competitions but is unlikely to be handed a new deal as the Old Trafford club are eyeing new and young centre-backs ahead of January and next summer.

Estimated market value: Free

Mason Greenwood

The 22-year-old is currently on loan in La Liga with Getafe after the Red Devils announced in August that he will no longer play for the club.

The Man United academy graduate last featured for the club in January 2022, and while he has had charges of attempted rape and assault against him dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service, his career has suffered a huge setback and is expected to be sold in the summer.

Estimated market value: £15m

Raphael Varane

The French centre-back has lost his place in the starting XI to Harry Maguire.

The England international would have been on this list a couple of weeks ago having come close to joining West Ham United last summer, but he has turned his fortunes around, which could end up forcing Varane out of the club.

A January exit has been mooted for the former Madrid star who joined the club in August 2021 in a £41m deal on a four-year contract.

The 30-year-old will not be short of suitors, but Ten Hag could decide to hold on to him until next summer given his need for cover and competition at the back for the second half of the campaign.

Estimated market value: £30m

Tom Heaton

The 37-year-old former Burnley star was keen to leave Man United in the summer and will most likely finally do so when his contract ends at the end of the campaign.

He is behind Andre Onana and Altay Bayindir in the pecking order and will look to play elsewhere having found opportunities few and far between since joining in 2021.
