Man United should sell these 7 players, agree?

According to The Express, former Chelsea midfielder, Craig Burley thinks Man United need to get rid of a few players. Do you agree with his choices?

Man United haven’t got off to the best start this Premier League campaign. They are being linked with different players every week.

With the transfer window opening in January, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking to bring in some new talent.

However, could it be a chance for him to also get rid of some players? Well, ESPN pundit, Craig Burley has had his say on who they should be…

Selected seven

He thinks that Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Fred, Marcos Rojo, Nemanja Matic, Phil Jones and Ashley Young should find new clubs.

The former Chelsea player has given his reasonings too along with his picks.


Burley has said that Pogba needs to go because he is no longer needed. Jesse Lingard has had problems off the pitch and that is apparentley enough to get rid of him.

Fred is being outshone by Scott McTominay. Rojo is apparently a ‘headache waiting to happen.’ Matic’s legs have ‘gone’ according to the pundit.

Phil Jones is ‘deadwood’ also. Finally, Ashley Young should also go because he simply isn’t needed with his current performances. Do you agree?

Man United set to miss their main man for another 4 weeks

According to ESPN, Man United will be without Paul Pogba for a little longer than planned. Even when he is recovered, they will want to be cautious with him.

The French international broke a bone in his right ankle at the end of September. He has been wearing a plaster cast ever since.

The cast will be removed in 10 days. However, the midfielder will need another 2 weeks of rehab after that.

It will only be then when Pogba will be able to train again. Man United are hoping he will be back before the end of December.


Apparently, Paul Pogba is desperately wanting to make his return. He has even been in Dubai for treatment.

Man United are clearly struggling without him. However, they will have to be careful and not rush him back into action too soon.

A goal scorer is needed but a fit and healthy player is more important.

Notts County fans react to former Man Utd man reported takeover interest ‘Yeah right…where ever, whenever’

Most football fans could probably share a bizarre story about their club. From players, they nearly signed to people who nearly managed them. However, Notts County fans can top that list this week.

ESPN has released an article explaining that Barcelona centre back, Gerard Pique, nearly bought Notts County. Yes, you read that right.

Pique has been getting into investing his money in businesses. Recently he’s been looking outside of Barcelona and bizarrely, Notts County was of interest to him. However, it didn’t go ahead…

Stopped in his tracks

The only thing that stopped this purchase of the National League club was an unpaid tax bill. The former Notts County owner, Alan Hardy was forced to sell to other options.

Pique is still investing and won’t be put off by this unsuccessful purchase. Fans have reacted to the news by making puns in regards to the Spanish man’s wife, Shakira.

Some are finding it hard to believe and others are finding it quite funny. Some think he’s got a good business head. What do you make of this?
