Reports suggest Manchester United will have a huge clear-out this summer as they look to raise the funds to be able to sign prime target Jadon Sancho.
Sancho is widely expected to leave Borussia Dortmund in the upcoming transfer window after lighting up the Bundesliga in the past two seasons.
However, business in the transfer window has been thrown into doubt due to financial uncertainty amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Vice-executive Chairman Ed Woodward admitted on Friday that transfer business will be affected by the virus and this could mean United struggle to sign their top targets.
However, according to the Sun, United are willing to sell at least five players so they can afford Sancho’s huge transfer fee.
Their report states that star midfielder Paul Pogba may leave Old Trafford this summer.
Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira are also all said to be on the chopping block as Solskjaer looks to shape his rebuild at Old Trafford.
While we expect Rojo and perhaps Smalling to leave this summer, it seems unlikely the club would sell all five without any guarantee they can sign replacements.
We feel the club will have enough funds regardless to be able to prize England international Sancho from Dortmund.
