Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is reportedly ready to sell five (5) players- Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Andreas Pereira, Chris Smalling, and Jesse Lingard to help fund a summer rebuild amid the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Manchester Evening News, Solskjaer is keen to add Aston Villa captain, Jack Grealish, to his ranks.
Man United are ready to offer any one of the five players to Aston Villa in a bid to drive down their £80million asking price for Grealish.
Rojo is enjoying his time back at Argentina side, Estudiantes LP on loan.
Smalling is happy at AS Roma on loan, while Jones, Pereira and Lingard have not really impressed at Old Trafford so far this season.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer recently acknowledged that the club would seek to exploit clubs when the transfer window starts this summer as COVID-19 continues to disrupt sporting activities across the world.
“Football is going to get back to normality, and United have to be ready,” Solskjaer said on Sky Sports.
“Indeed, we discuss players, we examine plans, and we evaluate what we need.
“There might be a situation that Man United can exploit because we are the biggest club, and we are well off.
“I’m sure we are capable of doing the business that we want too.
Solskjaer is believed to have the backing of United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, and this will be reflected in the transfer market.
However, the club want to reduce their wage bill and move on several players to make way for any potential new arrivals.
United will look for buyers for Alexis Sanchez, who is currently on loan at Inter Milan.
Another player out on loan is Marcos Rojo, who has lost his place at Old Trafford, with Solskjaer preferring Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly ahead of him.
