Man Utd vs West Ham: Solskjaer to sell four players


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will sell a minimum of four players to boost to £60m, after being handed a budget of around £80m by the board.

Solskjaer spent around £75m on Donny van de Beek, Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles, Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellestri last summer.

United, however, raised around £15m through the sale of Chris Smalling to Roma, while Alexis Sanchez’s move to Inter Milan freed up significant space on their wage bill.

Still, the club’s finances have barely improved since.

Solskjaer wants to sign a centre-back, a right-winger, a defensive midfielder and a centre forward this summer.

But the 47-year-old knows he must raise funds through player sales.

Jesse Lingard’s fine form at West Ham has boosted United’s chances of getting the club’s £20m selling price for the midfielder.

Solskjaer agreed to let Diogo Dalot join AC Milan on a season-long loan last summer. The Portuguese full-back was signed for £18m from Porto in 2018 and he has made 22 appearances for the Italian giants this season.

United would hope to earn alittle increase on what they purchased Dalot and that they are during a strong position given he has two years to run on his deal, with an option of an extra year.

Phil Jones has not played one minute for the club this campaign and Solskjaer is keen to maneuver him on. Newcastle United, Burnley and West Ham have all shown interest in Jones over the last 18 months and United hopes to recoup around £10m for the britain defender this summer.

Juan Mata is out of contract at the top of the season, but United will trigger a 12-month extension clause in his deal before taking note of offers for the Spaniard. Roma, Inter Milan and Juventus have all shown interest within the playmaker, who remains one among the very best earners at Old Trafford.
