Gary Neville holds that Manchester United could let three players depart the club in the season transfer window.

United are planning for the transfer window in good shape, with the team standing second in the Premier League table, and booking a place in the final of the Europa League.

Triumph over Aston Villa on Sunday stretched their unbeaten away run in the Premier League to 25 matches and, with 70 points, they are all but guaranteed of a Champions League place next season.

Goals from Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood, and Veteran Edinson Cavani saw United come from behind once more and seal a dramatic 3-1 win at Villa Park.

Things got even better for United on Monday, when Cavani committed his future to the club by signing a one-year contract extension.

The 34-year-old has scored 15 goals in 35 appearances this summer, eight of which have come in his last seven matches, and will be a real asset to the club in 2021/22.

While they have Cavani’s signature for next summer, there are plenty of pieces of business that remain exceptional before the transfer window opens on June 9 for 12 weeks.


The Red Devils are targeting a center-back to ally to Harry Maguire and are also involved in Borussia Dortmund attacking pair Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho.

Amid all the talk about incomings at Old Trafford, those who might depert have possibly gone under the radar.

However, with five games left of their season, Neville has predicted those who may be shown the door from the club at the end of the campaign.

“I think Juan Mata has done fantastically well for the club but I think he’ll leave,” the former United defender said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“I think they can get good money for Daniel James, but again, he could go somewhere else and they can get good money for him.

“There’s a feeling that Jesse Lingard, he’s done really well at West Ham, but I think Ole will say no, he can explore and go elsewhere.

“Van de Beek has to stay, in my opinion. The rest of them: Rashford, Fernandes, Greenwood, Pogba, Martial, van de Beek and Cavani – if Manchester United were to sign Harry Kane and Sancho, for example, then will Cavani play? Will Greenwood? Where will that leave Rashford?

“Where does Pogba fit in, if Ole plays two defensive midfielders as he does, with Fernandes in front because he’s a guarantee.

“I think Sancho comes in and he plays on that right-hand side, you’ve potentially got the back-up of Greenwood on that side, you’ve got Cavani and Greenwood up front.

“On the left, you’ve got Rashford and Martial and then you’ve got Pogba who potentially fits in if he’s not in midfield.

“If you sign Kane or Haaland, I don’t think that basically works for United with the way they’ve recruited in the last few years.

“Allowing young players like Greenwood, making sure Rashford plays, Van de Beek getting a game. I think it’s Sancho and then that’s their business done.”
