Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the exit of four players this summer according to the report from the Daily Mirror.
It was revealed that Solskjaer is determined to make a big clear out this summer and at least four players are likely to be victims.
Juan Manuel Mata, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo and Romelu Lukaku could leave Manchester United this summer according to the aforementioned publication.
Manchester United had a season to forget after missing out on a trophy as well as Champions League football.
The Red Devils ended the just concluded Premier League campaign in sixth position after a five-game winless run till the end of the season.
Spanish playmaker Juan Mata will be a free agent this summer and several clubs are already on his trail.
European clubs like Barcelona, Newcastle United, Arsenal are all keen to take him on a free transfer upon the expiration of his contract at Manchester United.
Italian international Matteo Darmian has seen little action at Manchester United in the last one year and he has been linked with a return to Italy with clubs like Inter Milan and Juventus.
Marcos Rojo had battled with fitness problems in the past months and the Argentine international could leave Old Trafford this summer.
On his own part, Belgian international Lukaku has been linked with Inter Milan despite the fact that he has three years left on his Manchester United contract.
Man Utd Target Closing In On £27m Return
Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels is on the verge of making a sensational return to former club Borussia Dortmund according to Sky Sports.
Retired German international center-back Hummels was a Borussia Dortmund player before he joined rivals Bayern Munich on a free transfer in 2016.
The aforementioned media channel revealed that Borussia Dortmund have agreed on a deal with Bayern Munich for his transfer.
Borussia Dortmund are expected to pay £27m for the 30-year-old defender who has spent three years at the Allianz Arena.
He scored three goals in 74 league appearances for Bayern Munich over the last three years.
Mats Hummels was previously linked with Premier League giants Manchester United but the Red Devils were unable to lure him away from Bayern Munich.
Since his move to Bayern Munich, Mats Hummels has helped the Bavarian giants to three straight league titles including the one for the just concluded German Bundesliga season.
Hummels and Bayern Munich sealed the league title on the final day of the season at the expense of Borussia Dortmund.
The Bavarian giants clawed back a nine-point deficit to Borussia Dortmund to finish two points clear at the end of the season.
Mats Hummels completed the double with Bayern Munich after the German Cup win.
Paul Pogba Ready To Force Man Utd Exit
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly ready to force through his exit from the club during this summer’s transfer window.
This is according to new reports emanating from the media in Spain amidst the strong interest from Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid.
The Los Merengues have made Paul Pogba their top midfield target this summer but Manchester United are reluctant to let their best player leave the club this summer.
According to Spanish media outlet ABC, French World Cup winner Pogba has concluded plans to go on strike to secure his dream move to Real Madrid if Manchester United don’t want to let him leave the club.
Paul Pogba has previously talked up the possibility of playing for Real Madrid under the guidance of French football legend Zinedine Zidane.
Recent reports claimed that Zidane personally fought for the potential signing of Pogba ahead of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen despite the fact that the Frenchman would be a more expensive acquisition.
Paul Pogba re-signed for Manchester United three years ago for a then world-record fee of £89m after he had spent four successful years as a Juventus player.
The 26-year-old joined Juventus in the summer of 2012 from Manchester United on a free transfer before going on to win four Italian Serie A titles in a row.
Man United Ready To Pay £80m Asking Price For Prolific Defender
Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly ready to pay the asking price of £80m for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.
According to The Sun, Manchester United chief executive, Ed Woodward is ready to give in to the hefty financial demands of Leicester City who have slammed the aforementioned transfer fee on the England international centre back.
Manchester United want to sign a new quality centre back and Harry Maguire is said to be the number one candidate for the job after the Red Devils were snubbed by Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt.
The former European champions were said to have offered De Ligt a lucrative deal worth £350,000 on a weekly basis in addition to £75m in transfer fee only for him to opt for the European duo of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Barcelona.
The 19-year-old is expected to join one of the two clubs between now and the end of the transfer window.
For Manchester United, the priority is to get it right this summer having already missed out on Harry Maguire last summer when they shunned the £60m to £70m asking price only for the Foxes to ask for more this summer.
The Red Devils wanted to sign the former Sheffield United and Hull City player shortly after last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
Man Utd To Miss Out On Antoine Griezmann Signing
Premier League giants Manchester United will reportedly miss out on Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann this summer.
This is according to the publication from the Daily Mirror which claimed that Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona will complete a deal worth £150m for French World Cup winner Griezmann.
The said fee includes the transfer fee and his wages.
It was also revealed that Barcelona skipper and talisman Lionel Messi personally put a call through to Antoine Griezmann to talk to him about moving to the Nou Camp.
Three-time European champions Manchester United and French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have also tried to sign Antoine Griezmann this summer but the two clubs will miss out on his signing to Barcelona.
Atletico Madrid star Griezmann came close to joining Barcelona last summer but he decided to stay with the Rojiblancos and also sign a new contract.
The Frenchman could have left Atletico Madrid for Barcelona shortly after he played a big role for France in their World Cup winning feat in Russia last summer.
French national team star Griezmann will finally get his wish to sign for Barcelona one year later thanks partly to the intervention of Lionel Messi as mentioned above.
£36m Attacker Talks Up Man United Transfer
Gremio striker Everton Soares has talked about the prospect of playing for Premier League giants Manchester United this summer.
In a chat with the Daily Mail, the 23-year-old Brazilian international spoke about how his playing style will suit the style at Manchester United and the other interested clubs.
He had earlier brushed off transfer rumours surrounding him before responding when pressed further about the clubs keen to sign him this summer.
Apart from Manchester United, Premier League champions Manchester City, seven-time European champions AC Milan and French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) also want to sign him.
Everton reacted to questions about the aforementioned transfer rumours shortly after he made a goalscoring impact for the Brazilian national team.
The Gremio striker came off the bench for the Selecao during their 2019 COPA America opener against Bolivia.
He came on as an 81st-minute substitute for Ajax Amsterdam forward David Neres with Brazil leading 2-0 courtesy a pair of second-half goals from Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho.
Everton added a third and final strike for Brazil in what was the goal of the game four minutes after coming on as a second half substitute.
Interested clubs like Manchester United will have to pay between £27m and £36m which is a far cry from his £71m release clause.
Gremio president Romildo Junior had earlier stated that interested clubs must pay the full release clause.
Why Man United will lose in Lukaku’s Inter Milan transfer
There seem to be nothing beneficial for Man United in the expected move of Belgium international striker Romelu Lukaku from the club to Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan aside the fee that would be paid.
Romelu Lukaku had a frustrating last season and has opted to leave the club by declaring his love for Serie A, while Inter Milan new manager Antonio Conte is also a fan of the striker.
The Red Devils had, therefore, made an arrangement to snap up another player in addition to the fee that would be paid but that will not happen as it has been rejected.
An attempt by Man United to have included defender Milan Skriniar in a potential deal was rejected, according to reports in Italy.
Man United are desperate to rebuild their team and have a need for defenders with the Inter Milan player tipped to be a good deal for the club but that hope is ended.
This remains a blow to the Red Devils knowing that the demand of £75 million for the Belgium international would not be met by the Serie A outfit.
However, it is expected that negotiations would only be centered on the 26-year-old for a deal.
Man United linked with another Frenchman
English Premier League outfit Man United are reported to be interested in the signature of West Ham United centre half Issa Diop and could move in for him in the summer transfer window.
The Frenchman is only 22 but has shown that he can be a great player in the English Premier League after impressing for the Hammers last season.
It is claimed that Man United have been attracted to the star player and will make a move to land him before the end of this summer window.
Sky Sports report that the Red Devils are willing to give out a player in return to enable them rectify their leaky defence ahead of the coming season.
However, the Red Devils have been told that Issa Diop will not go for anything less than £60 million as they do not seek to part ways with him now.
The Red Devils are hoping to rebuild their team as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unhappy with the performance of his team in the just-concluded season.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils boss bad been handed the sum of £100 million to engage in the market as he seeks to land new faces. The first signing Daniel James has already been captured from Swansea.
One player is responsible for Pogba’s delay to Real Madrid
It has been reported according to Express that France international Paul Pogba ought to be on his way to Real Madrid by now but the deal is being delayed by Ajax central defender Matthijs de Ligt.
It is no longer news that Paul Pogba is pushing for a move out of Old Trafford and Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is keen on him as well but his agent Mino Raiola is busy trying to sort out the transfer of Matthijs de Ligt to handle that of the World Cup winner afterward.
Matthijs de Ligt, 19, is being wanted by a number of top teams in Europe, Man United, Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain are all keen to land him but he is not in a rush to make a decision as he will only wait until after the UEFA Nations League for Holland before coming out to say where he would be heading to.
Until that has been sorted out, there is no way Mino Raiola would be able to press for the move of the French midfielder to Real Madrid.
However, Man United have given up on keeping the former Juventus star as it is now getting clearer that he would be leaving.

Jose Mourinho could return to Stamford Bridge
This is not the news Chelsea fans might be expecting as it is far from what should be believed but former manager Jose Mourinho is already being linked for a shock return to Stamford Bridge.
It is no longer news that Chelsea are already in the market for a new manager as they are set to part ways with manager Maurizio Sarri who seems to have agreed on a new deal with Italian Serie A outfit Juventus.
Maurizio Sarri did not find his stay at the West London outfit palatable and he would not think twice as he informed the club of his willingness to leave.
Former player Frank Lampard has been linked with a return to the Stamford Bridge to take charge of the club with claims that talks are ongoing and it could be finalized any moment from now.
Despite the positives about his reported return, it has been claimed that former manager Jose Mourinho is available for the job and that means he would be returning for the third spell.
This will come with mixed feelings from the fans as some will no longer desire to have the Portuguese manager return again.
Jose Mourinho was sacked as Man United boss in December last year and he has since been without a job with claims that he had turned down offers because the clubs have no required ambition.
