Manchester United‘s race for the top four took a big hit after the club lost 2-1 against Wolves in the Premier League. With six more matches to go, things are heating up for the Reds. And now, if reports are to be believed, several players could be on the way out in the summer.
United confirmed the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their permanent boss after offering him a three-year-deal. The club legend is said to be preparing for the club’s transfer activities.
Solskjaer will be keen to make things work, as he has identified a few players to bolster the squad. There is also an uncertainty regarding the futures of some players.
According to a report in the BBC, the likes of Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, and Alexis Sanchez are all in a period of uncertainty at the moment.

Sanchez has struggled at the club since day one, and his injury issues have made United impatient. The manager is one the verge of deciding whether or not to keep Alexis, but the former Arsenal man’s salary could be a stumbling block.
Manchester United are also in dialogue with Herrera and Mata, with both the players set to run down their current contracts at the end of the season.
Reports claim that Herrera has had a pre-contract agreement with Paris Saint-Germain, and is likely to leave for free. Mata’s situation remains unknown, although talks are said to be ongoing at the moment.
Besides these names, Antonio Valencia is set to depart, alongside the likes of Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo.
Meanwhile, the Mancunians have identified Raphael Varane as a prime target for the summer window, as the Real Madrid defender is believed to be wanting an exit.
