Man Utd ‘want to sack THIRTEEN players in summer including Maguire and Martial but striker target will snub them’
IT COULD be a busy summer of spending at Manchester United.
Boss Erik ten Hag is reportedly set to oversee an end-of-season eviction to comply with FFP guidelines and fund incoming transfers.
And up to THIRTEEN Players could be outsourced, according to the Daily Mail.
But after a thrashing at United, Brighton sensation Evan Ferguson looks set to remain on the south coast.
It is said that only a mammoth figure can turn the young forward away from the Seagulls, although Ferguson idolized Wayne Rooney as a child and supported the Red Devils.
SunSport exclusively revealed last month that Brighton are planning to reward the 18-year-old with a new contract for his form.
United are reportedly looking to sign a forward, midfielder, centre-back and right-back AND goalie in summer.
Therefore, sales are required.
Mail claim club captain Harry Maguire is one of several stars who could be sold in the summer.
The 30-year-old has fallen down the pecking order under Ten Hag but started and impressed in the weekend’s 2-0 win over Everton.

Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams are also reportedly facing an uncertain future.
Martial has struggled with injuries this season and Van de Beek remains sidelined with a knee problem sustained in January.
Right-back Wan-Bissaka was also unable to secure a regular place.
Elsewhere, up to 12 teams are said to be in the race to sign Anthony Elanga.
The 20-year-old has started just five Premier League games this season and is said to be open to a move.
Alex Telles and Eric Bailly, both currently on loan, could also be passed on for good.
While no other players are named in the report, defenders Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones have both been linked with a departure.
And MEN reports that Ten Hag is losing patience with winger Jadon Sancho.
Goalkeeper David De Gea is also yet to sign a new contract and has turned down the club’s opening bid, although United expect the Spaniard to agree to the terms.
The Red Devils are in no rush to sell Scott McTominay but have slapped a £50million price tag on the midfielder amid transfer interests, SunSport have revealed.
