Manchester United are looking at a flash sale this summer in order to fund big-money summer moves, according to Martin Blackburn of The Sun.
United’s transfer strategy has changed drastically since the arrival of boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
They are looking for young talents who could blossom into the future star player of the team.
Likewise, the Red Devils are trying to sell older players who are surplus to requirements.
In the next transfer window, they will look to follow this ideology further and show a number of players the exit door.
They would consider accepting a bid for Paul Pogba, should it be sizable, and may also attempt to cash in on underperforming pair Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira, both of whom have had disastrous seasons.
Similarly, Marcos Rojo is viewed as surplus to requirements, while Chris Smalling’s exemplary performances in Serie A this season have earned interest from Premier League sides Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Roma.
United will try to sell as many of the aforementioned players – as well as Alexis Sanchez – to afford moves for some of their targets.
Jadon Sancho may cost them upwards of £100 million, while Jack Grealish is another player who would make for an expensive transfer, and James Maddison could also be a pricey addition.
Jude Bellingham would not come cheap as Birmingham City look for around £30 million.
GoalBall understands getting all of these players could add up to over £200 million.
With so many other targets come the transfer window, the English giants are ready for a mass sale to raise funds for their big-money summer signings.
