Manchester United battling to offload a number of fringe players from the squad.
The Red Devils has to offload a few of their players in order to strengthen in several key areas according to transfer expert Dharmesh Sheth.
Following Dean Henderson’s return from Sheffield United to the squad, Sergio Romero has dropped to the third choice and the club is keen to offload the Argentinian this summer.
Chris Smalling was impressive while on loan with Serie A side Roma last year and Solskjaer is hoping that Roma would submit a new offer for the defender to lure him away from Old Trafford.
“Departures are proving very difficult for Manchester United and there seems to be a feeling of surprise at Old Trafford that they’ve been unable to get suitable offers for some of their players,” Dharmesh told Sky Sports’ Transfer Show.
“Chris Smalling is still training on his own, away from the first team, but Roma are yet to meet United’s valuation.
“They want to do business with Roma, and he wants to go back, but the most important element of the fee simply can’t be agreed at the moment.
“Add to that, there are other players that United would be willing to sell. Sergio Romero has gone from second choice to third-choice goalkeeper, and there’s simply been no interest in Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Andreas Pereira and Marcos Rojo.”
