Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly open to the idea of selling two of their defenders after they signed Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

According to the Manchester Evening News (MEN), Manchester United want to offload two centre backs this summer since Maguire is now in the bag.

Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo have both been transfer-listed at Manchester United.

Smalling was previously linked with clubs like Arsenal and Everton earlier this year and it remains to be seen whether these teams are still interested in him.

Arsenal need a new centre back in their squad after club skipper Laurent Koscielny revealed that he’s no longer interested in playing for the club after his request to leave the Gunners on a free transfer was turned down.

Everton are also in need of a central defender after the exits of both Kurt Zouma and Phil Jagielka this summer.

Zouma was on loan at Everton from Chelsea last season and he has gone back to his parent club, while Jagielka has left the club after the end of his contract at Goodison Park.

Phil Jagielka has joined former club Sheffield United on a free transfer after leaving Merseyside giants Everton.

On his part, Rojo has one year left on his current deal at Manchester United.
