After a disastrous performance against Everton, it is clear that the problem at Manchester United was not Jose Mourinho, it was something bigger. The board and the CEO, Ed Woodward have made some terrible football decisions ever since Sir Alex left this club. The transfer especially has been disastrous and the impact of these ill thought decisions will be felt for years to come. Solskjaer has made it clear that there needs to be an squad overhaul this summer but it remains to be seen whether United will manage to sell their highly paid players who won’t offered the wages they are currently earning anywhere else.
4 players who should be sold by Man United this summer
It is hard to imagine that Juan Mata was once back to back player of the year winner at Chelsea during which time he used to rack up goals and assists at ease. He never hit those heights and although he is only 30, physically he has declined a lot and struggles to play when the tempo and pace is high in a game. Both for the player and the club it would make sense to part ways this summer.
Another underwhelming signing who has hardly played for United. It is really surprising that Darmian has hardly got a chance to play when his biggest competitor for his favorite position is Ashley Young. It is clear that he has no future at Old Trafford.
One of the few transfer which actually made sense when United bought initially but slowly it became clear why Chelsea let him Matic go to United. Matic gave a single good season to United but now his is simply too slow for the Premier League. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking to implement a high pressing system, players like Matic have to be sacrificed.
It is clear that Pereira doesn’t have the quality to become a first team player for Manchester United. And at this time in his career, he should be looking to play as much first team football as possible.
