Man United plan record-breaking fire sale this summer

Manchester United are reportedly planning a summer exodus that could see them rake in a record-breaking sum this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The Red Devils have been criticised for failing to sell their assets well in recent years, but the new co-owners plan to change the status quo.

United want to be more proactive in the seller’s market to adhere to the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR). Sir Jim Ratcliffe has identified several players to be sold.

Raphael Varane, Anthony Martial and Tom Heaton will likely leave the club when their contracts run out this summer. 

There is also plenty of uncertainty regarding the futures of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof and Facundo Pellistri. The trio are out of contract next year.

Midfielder Sofyan Amrabat will return to Fiorentina after an unconvincing season-long loan at the club. 

Ratcliffe declared they will decide the future of Mason Greenwood this summer after an impressive loan spell in Getafe. He is still under contract at United until 2025. 

Casemiro, who has interest from the Saudi Pro League, could leave this summer to see out the twilight of his career in the Middle East. 

Loanees Jadon Sancho, Donny van de Beek and Hannibal Mejbri are available for sale. Benfica already have an option to buy on-loan Alvaro Fernandez. 

Antony is also expected to be on the market after struggling in England following his £86.3 million move from Ajax. 

Manager Erik ten Hag played teenager Omari Forson ahead of him in the loss to Fulham, showing how he has dropped down the pecking order.

The Dutch manager’s future is also uncertain, potentially impacting decisions surrounding players such as Sancho.

This summer promises pivotal changes for United, with player departures and potential managerial decisions shaping the club’s future.

The potential fire sale shows that the INEOS Group is ready to adhere to financial regulations and rectify mistakes the club has made over the years.
