TRANSFERS: Ten Hag wants to offload four at Manchester United

However, getting rid of them may face a challenge given what the club might ask for as transfer fees.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is keen to offload Harry Maguire, Jadon Sancho, Fred, and Scott McTominay this summer.

The exits of these stars, however, are understood to be very difficult to arrange. Ten Hag wants to restructure his squad and make it more competitive so that next season, he can take shots at different titles.

The Red Devils are also operating on a limited budget and will get surplus cash by selling players who have been playing peripheral roles. Their primary priorities are buying a goalkeeper - with Inter Milan's Andre Onana is the target - and a centre-forward.

The three identified are seen as fringe players, and the Old Trafford outfit will look to offload them, however, they are not going to be let go cheaply.

Maguire was bought for £80 million from Leicester City after leading the Foxes to the Premier League in the 2015/16 season, and United will ask for around £50 million for him this summer. This could be asking for much more for a player whose form has been so poor over the last year that any such figure seems unlikely.

The England international has been linked with West Ham United, but the Hammers are not expected to pay anything more than £35 million for the 30-year-old defender.

Sancho was signed for £73 million in 2021 from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund but has failed to impress at Old Trafford. He arrived amid much fanfare but has not lived up to expectations, and now he could be loaned out or even sold.

Sancho's move is going to be complicated because of the transfer fee and wages, though. Ten Hag is keen to move on from the England international, who has so far been linked with Tottenham Hotspur.
