Manchester United look to offload £75m striker Romelu Lukaku along with five other first teamers so as to free up room in the squad for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to reports.
Solskjaer has warned that players who don’t perform for him will face the axe at Old Trafford.
The future doesn't look good for Lukaku in Manchester, having played a bit-part role for Man United since Solskjaer’s arrival, starting just 15 of 29 games.
Notwithstanding scoring some vital goals, the Norwegian boss is delighted to offload the forward and make room for others in the squad.
It is expected Marcus Rashford will pick up the mantle with Martial also able to fill in. Young talent Mason Greenwood will get the chance to shine from the bench on occasion as well.
There’s been reported interest in the Belgian from Inter Milan, who are supposed to announce the appointment of former Chelsea boss and Premier League title winner Antonio Conte.
The striker is just one of six expected to leave in Solskjaer’s summer exodus, as per the Mirror.
Ander Herrera has also confirmed his departure after five years at the club.
Club-captain Antonio Valencia has also waved goodbye to United.
The next high profile departure is expected to be Juan Mata.
Matteo Damian and Marcos Rojo are also expected to depart having made tepid impacts in Manchester themselves.
