Six Man Utd stars who could depart in January as Solskjaer ships out unhappy players

Six Man Utd stars who could depart in January as Solskjaer ships out unhappy players

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been clinging to his job in recent weeks after a poor run of form. 

Last month, the Red Devils were thrashed 5-0 by Liverpool, ending a four-game winless streak in the Premier League.

Last Saturday, Solskjaer put an end to that streak when United defeated Tottenham 3-0 in north London.

On Tuesday night, Solskjaer was again indebted to Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a stoppage-time equalizer as Manchester United drew 2-2 with Atalanta in the Champions League.

The Norwegian manager will be eager to build on those two results and lead his team to a turnaround in fortunes in the coming weeks in order to keep his job.

And, if he manages to keep his job, he’ll be looking ahead to the January transfer window.

Because of United’s large squad, a number of players aren’t getting as many first-team opportunities as they would like at Old Trafford.

 Six players who could leave the club in January as reported by Express Sport.

Anthony Martial

Following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, Anthony Martial has fallen far down the pecking order in the north west.

Since Ronaldo’s return, the France international has only started one game in all competitions.

Martial has been linked with a move to Newcastle since the club was taken over last month, and a move to St James’ Park could be an attractive option for the forward.

The 25-year-old is clearly a talented player who will not want to remain on the United bench for much longer.

Jesse Lingard

Jesse Lingard looked set for a big chance at Old Trafford after impressing for West Ham on loan last season.

During 16 games for the Hammers, the 28-year-old scored nine goals and assisted on five others.

However, the winger has yet to start a game in the Premier League or Europe this season and has only made a few appearances from the bench.

He was left out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad this week and will almost certainly seek a transfer away from the club before the end of the season.

Donny van de Beek

Donny van de Beek’s story is quite peculiar. Big things were expected of the midfielder after he was signed from Ajax for £40 million last year.

But he wasn’t given much of a chance last season, and his United career has taken a turn for the worse this season, with Solskjaer giving him just six minutes of Premier League action.

Van de Beek recently changed agents following a botched move to Everton in the summer, and he is expected to leave Old Trafford in the new year.

Phil Jones

Phil Jones hasn’t played for Manchester United’s first team in nearly two years, and his time at the club appears to be coming to an end.

The defender has suffered a string of injuries and was even told by United hero Rio Ferdinand that he should leave the club in the summer.

Jones is still only 29 years old, and if he can regain his fitness, he could be a viable option for a team in the Premier League’s lower tiers.


Amad has only recently returned from an injury suffered in the summer.

The 19-year-old has been dubbed a “wonderkid,” but he has only appeared eight times for the Red Devils since signing in January.

Solskjaer was reportedly considering loaning out the winger, but the manager may look to cash in on the youngster if he hasn’t shown the potential that the Manchester United manager expected when he signed.

Diogo Dalot

Diogo Dalot is Manchester United’s second-choice right-back, but he isn’t getting much of a chance because of the emergence of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at AC Milan, and the San Siro club was reportedly eager to re-sign him at the start of this season.

Dalot could be another player who leaves Old Trafford in the early part of next year if he can’t force his way into Solskjaer’s thoughts.
