The eight Manchester United players who want to leave and why

Published

on

A number of Man United players want to leave the club but the majority are set to stay at least until the end of the season.

Dean HendersonHenderson was told by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the summer he had been pencilled in to start the campaign as United’s number one but he contracted Covid-19 in his first week back in pre-season and was laid low for a month.

The illness has effectively written off six months of Henderson’s career as, by the time he had recovered, the summer transfer window had closed.David de Gea has regained form this season that has limited Henderson to just two starts.

His absence for the FA Cup tie against Aston Villa is understood to have been related to his future as Henderson is so insistent on getting a loan move to guarantee him regular playing time.Henderson started 25 United games last season and made his England debut but he has lost his place in the national squad this season.

Gallingly for Henderson, Aaron Ramsdale, who floundered as Henderson’s replacement at Sheffield United, is now Jordan Pickford’s prime competitor for the number one spot at the winter World Cup.United tied down Henderson on a five-year contract in 2020 and he is on £110,000-a-week.

Tottenham are monitoring his situation and Ajax are keen on recruiting Henderson on loan this month, with the ‘keeper eager for the move to materialise.

Ajax’s coach, Erik ten Hag, is under consideration to become United’s next permanent manager.

Phil JonesJones waited 708 days to play again, performed commendably in the defeat to Wolves and then got injured again.

His quad problem is said to be minor, with a return at Villa possible on Saturday, but nobody was fooled by the Lazarus act last week. Jones’s future lies away from United and he privately accepts that.

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward

Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.

Manchester United and fellow Premier League clubs are counting down the days until they can strike-up further business in the transfer market. Erik ten Hag welcomed six players to Old Trafford during his first window and they have all made their mark in the starting XI.

Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have all quickly become mainstays, while Antony broke a record set by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored on Sunday night. That 2-1 victory over Everton also saw former Real Madrid player Casemiro handed his first Premier League start for the club.

Martin Dubravka was the other recruit, signing on a season-long loan from Newcastle.

With one eye on January and future windows, meanwhile, United are understood to still have Frenkie de Jong on their radar, while elite clubs from across Europe will be queuing up for Jude Bellingham should he decided to leave Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the near transfer window.

Bellingham plays alongside plenty of Chelsea stars on the international stage with England, so let’s hope they can put in a good word to try tempt him to the Bridge.
