Another Man Utd on his way out has Solskjaer’s vision starts to pan out
Man Utd is open to letting one of their seven senior defenders leave this summer…
Fans of the Premier League have already had the ups and downs of the transfer window. But clubs in Europe can still purchase players from English clubs until September 2nd. The MEN have reported that Man Utd are willing to let Marcos Rojo leave the club, with the likely destination being Fenerbahce, though other clubs are interested.
Solskjaer has seven senior defenders in his squad. The Norwegian manager, according to his recent team selections, favours Axel Tuanzebe as the substitute defender whilst power couple Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof start the game.
This leaves Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and the currently injured Eric Bailly left out of the squad entirely.
Is there a plan behind the offloading of players?
By removing Romelu Lukaku, Mason Greenwood has a spot on the bench. Discarding Alexis Sanchez allows Tahith Chong or Angel Gomes to battle for a spot. Reducing the number of defenders gives Axel Tuanzebe the first-team action he deserves.
Solskjaer appears to be offloading players that take up spots for the hungry young talents at the club.
In true Man Utd fashion, they are giving their academy graduates priority over players brought in for a large fee and wage.
Man Utd fans should be extremely excited about the progression of their club. Solskjaer is determined to make his mark on the club and the team.
In the opening week of the Premier League season, Man Utd had the youngest team. Mourinho was heavily criticised for dismissing the youth and playing slow, pragmatic football. Solskjaer’s approach has been the polar opposite.
Before the season began many speculated that Solskjaer’s position as the manager would collapse before Christmas but the recent improvement says otherwise.
Could we be seeing the second coming of the class of ’92? The coming years under Solskjaer’s reign will say it all.
