Manchester United are in for a busy transfer window and the reports coming in all week have been focusing primarily on the players that they could be signing.
However, there is an obvious need within their roster to get rid of the deadwood as well and free up space for fresher legs.
While the ones clearly surplus to requirements will likely be sold one way or another, it is some of the bigger names that United may need to worry about.
It has been claimed that the higher paygrades talents like Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez, and Romelu Lukaku are all considering their futures away from Manchester United in the summer.
While Sanchez and Lukaku may be on their way out regardless, given how Solskjaer’s lineup doesn’t accommodate them and their form adequately, it is Pogba who may be tempted to move away.
According to the Sunday Express, Juventus wish to sign Pogba and are willing to offer United two of their bigger players in a swap deal. Both Paulo Dybala and Alex Sandro could join Old Trafford in exchange for Pogba rejoining the Old lady.
While this is a deal that United would savor, as Dybala would solve their forward woes and provide them with a creative attacker and in Sandro they’ll be graced with an experienced fullback, it may prove to be too good to be true.
In a normal season where United still commanded Champions League football, such a transfer deal could have been brokered. However, Dybala, in particular, may not elect to play in the Europa League.
The Argentine striker was believed to be unhappy with the Serie A giants. However, he himself stated that it wasn’t the case and that he was looking forward to spending the upcoming season at Juve. However, that doesn’t rule out Sandro playing a part in a potential swap deal.
