Man United are still a lot of signings away from challenging for the Premier League title again, they’ll do well to reach the top four this season. However, it’s important they sell the right players, as well as sign them.
United still have a lot of deadwood, that simply isn’t good enough. Without squad depth, you won’t challenge for Premier League titles. I understand their main priority is to significantly improve their starting 11. However, at some point, they’ll have to sign quality squad players too, if they want to challenge in Europe and for the league title.
So, there’s a number of players I could’ve gone with, here’s the two I think should leave United in the next transfer window…
Their must be a player in their somewhere, Man City tried to sign him and he cost a fee of £50 million. I’ve seen glimpses to suggest why they signed him, but not a consistent basis.
Now Scott McTominay has nailed down the holding role, Fred is the third choice behind Nemanja Matic. Cut your losses, sell him for a few million and strengthen elsewhere. It’s pointless having a £50 million player sitting on the bench for year upon year, his value will keep decreasing.
He’s had chances and time at United to prove himself, and he’s not at that top standard. Albeit I think people exaggerate how poor he is, Jones would fit in a mid-table side very well, he’s never going to be Man United task.
Times change, but I associate United have defenders like Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, even Harry Maguire is leagues above Jones. Chris Smalling has left on loan and I’d be surprised if he ever played for United again. Jones should be sold and he can resurrect his career elsewhere.
