Top 5 Manchester United Players Leaving This Summer

This list has been accumulated based on the players who have already left the club and also players who could probably leave, even if not now, most likely in the near future.

5. Paul Pogba – Manchester United Players Leaving This Summer

Paul Pogba Wants To Quit Manchester United

If Paul Pogba was sold off by Manchester United, his name would easily shoot up to the very top of this list but we are still sceptical on whether the Red Devils will allow him to leave.

This summer, Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, revealed to the public his client’s wishes to leave United. He told the Times in July, “Everyone within the club [United] from the manager to the owner knows Paul’s wishes. Everyone knows the willingness of Paul to move on. We are in the process of that. Everyone knows what the feelings of Paul are.”

Real Madrid have expressed a strong desire to sign Pogba by request of their manager, Zinedine Zidane. The Frenchman was so eager to bring his compatriot to the Bernabeu that rumours emerged claiming he threw a fit when a deal for Pogba had been put off.

The Galacticos are still vying for his signature but Manchester United would like to bring in Pogba’s replacement before they can let him go.

4. Antonio Valencia

Antonio Valencia Red Devil To Depart

Antonio Valencia’s career should truly be cherished by United fans just because of the consistent bit of service he provided over the past 10 years. The Ecuadorian international started out as a winger but then converted into a full-time right-back under Alex Ferguson.

Once he found his best position, Valencia was uncontested in the starting XI for the majority of his career at Old Trafford. He was blindingly fast, back in his prime and could drill in delicious balls into the opposition box.

He was so dependable that United had to spend around £70m just to replace him (£19m on Diogo Dalot and £50m on Aaron Wan-Bissaka).

3. Marcos Rojo

Best Players Leaving Manchester United This Summer

Marcos Rojo is definitely not the most important player on this list but he makes it to third because of how much United fans want him gone. The Argentine defender was one of Louis van Gaal’s 2015 summer overhaul, who could never really earn a starting spot at Old Trafford.

Much of Rojo’s United career has been spent on the sidelines with injury and the times he was on the pitch, the 29-year-old lacked a general quality that was required. He was signed for £16m and it would be a miracle if United can recuperate half of his original transfer fee.

Nevertheless, getting him off of the club’s books seems to be the best move after Ole Solskjaer handed new contracts to both Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.

2. Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku is the third most expensive player ever signed by Manchester United, behind Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire. The Belgian forward was signed from Everton for an original fee of £75m. That transfer fee could have easily risen to £90m through incentives.

Lukaku’s United stay was not the most unsuccessful but one can tell towards the end, that it was a misfit. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial showcased skills that was more suited to Solskjaer’s style of play and United had no choice but to sell Lukaku to the highest bidder.

Inter Milan picked him up for a neat £60m which could rise to £70m through added bonuses.

1. Ander Herrera

Top 5 Manchester United Players Leaving This Summer

Ander Herrera tops this list because of the level of impact he had at this football club. Herrera was signed by David Moyes in 2014 and he lived the entirety of his five-year contract.

However, after his final season, the Spaniard demanded a ridiculous pay hike which United were simply not prepared to pay him. Herrera did make a strong case for his demands by playing a crucial part during Ole Solskjaer’s appointment as the interim head coach.

When the Norwegian was permanently appointed to the position, he had expressed a strong intent in keeping Herrera for longer. The defensive midfielder offered United a consistent level of security in the central areas, in turn, also allowing Pogba or any other creative midfielder around him to play their natural game.

Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. Herrera had turned 30 and it made way more sense to look for a cheaper and younger alternative (someone United are yet to find). He signed for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.
