Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has decided to axe three players from his squad according to the Daily Telegraph.
Solskjaer and his Manchester United players are in Australia for preseason as they step up preparation for the new season billed to start next month.
According to the aforementioned report, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to axe the defensive trio of Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Eric Bailly between now and the rest of this summer’s transfer window.
It was revealed that Manchester United are ready to offer England international Jones as a part of the Harry Maguire deal.
The Red Devils want to offer him in a swap deal for the Leicester City defender.
Manchester United will have to come up with a world-record deal to sign Harry Maguire this summer.
The current transfer record for a defender stands at £75m after reigning European champions Liverpool paid that amount to sign Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton last year.
Apart from Phil Jones, Manchester United are also ready to sell fellow centre backs Rojo and Bailly.
Marcos Rojo has a year left on his current deal at Manchester United and he has been injury-prone for the majority of his time at the club just like what’s obtainable with Ivorian defender Eric Bailly.
