The Red Devils just recently completed the world-record signing of Paul Pogba, which many believe signals the end of Manchester United’s transfer dealings in the market.
However, Jose Mourinho still wants to trim his squad down to as little as 22 members. Bastian Schweinsteiger, Marco Rojo, Ashley Young and Daley Blind are only some of the players who are believed to be on their way out.
United have already spent a considerable amount in the transfer market, and therefore, the Reds will be looking towards bringing in some revenue from player sales.
Apart from the older, established players, the younger and less experienced ones such as Adnan Januzaj, James Wilson, and Borthwick-Johnson are believed to be leaving the club on loan deals.
Reports claim that Adnan Januzaj, the most talented of the youngsters, would prefer a permanent transfer away from the club. However, Manchester United will be looking to avoid any situations similar to the one they had with Paul Pogba.
Mourinho will therefore, send Januzaj out on loan to get some playtime and experience, as the loan deal ensures that United won’t come back begging later.
One of Januzaj’s potential destinations is David Moyes’ Sunderland. The former Everton and Manchester United boss has already secured a deal for Paddy McNair and Donald Love, with the pair set to leave United for a total fee of £6 million.
David Moyes was the man who awarded Januzaj his first team debut while he was the manager of United. The Scot will be looking towards signing the Belgian starlet, but will have to work fast if he is to secure Adnan’s signature. Inter Milan, Middlesbrough, and AC. Milan are also believed to be interested in the 21-year-old midfield prodigy.
