Manchester United are prepared to trim their squad as they close in on the transfer of Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also said to be planning further additions to his squad this summer, so will look to let go of the likes of Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira in the near future, according to the Times.
The Red Devils could do with strengthening after a disappointing season in 2019/20, in which they failed to win silverware and only narrowly made it into the top four.
According to The Times, Van de Beek has agreed terms to join United, and that Lingard and Pereira look to be likely names who’ll make way as Solskjaer also eyes a new centre-back, right winger, and striker.
Man Utd fans will hope the Red Devils boss can get this crucial business done, with Lingard and Pereira certainly not looking like being valuable members of the team any time soon.
Their departures could be key to raising funds and clearing the wage bill to help the Old Trafford outfit focus on bringing in players with more quality and better attitude.
