Our Departure Lounge looks more deserted than Heathrow at the moment very little talk of any players being on the move.

There's been the release list with Romero being the only real name worth noting on it from a first team point of view the reports are Mata/Grant are both in talks for another 1 year deal.

There's a lot of players at Utd that we are probably willing to listen to offers on the most high profile being Jesse Lingard but doesn't seem to be many rumours flying around about his future or anyone elses all gone a bit quiet.

This remains a big challenge for the club generating some funds for Ole to use by clearing some of the decks the loan players from last season Dalot, Periera, Chong will all return and we can only assume all be available for sale.

There is a rumour about martial - and I for one won't miss him. everyone used to laugh at Lukaku's first touch but I've always thought Martial's is just as suspect while he scores a hell of a lot fewer goals

Yeah I saw that talk of a loan to Real Madrid with an option to buy.

Not sure that’s a great deal for us unless we sign a centre forward this summer I think you have to keep him just so we’ve got some depth in the squad. If he’s going I’d want cash now or a loan with an obligation to buy if he goes to Madrid and is crap they just send him back and he’s our problem again.

He’s frustrating but he is still a good player you just can’t rely on him to be on his game every week.

I don't believe he'll ever be a natural goal-scorer - never going to get close to 20 league goals a season. I realise we might need to keep him for depth, but there must be better out there (if we don't get Kane or Halaand, and I don't see us getting either)

Can’t argue with any of that he’s to flaky to be a world class striker and it’s the same on the wing.

He’s B class not A class sadly just hasn’t kicked on I really thought he’d kicked on in 2019/20 but last season he was a terrible.

If we could also land a top striker this summer I’d let him go but he needs to be sold not some loan where he just slithers back next summer worth even less money. Can’t see us landing a striker so that means he stays around for another year as competition.

How have those talks not already taken place?

Jesse: Hey, what's the plan for next season?
MUFC: Thanks for making Wembley and the Emirates your personal dance floor, but you'll need to find yourself another club.
Jesse: Beans.

I’m sure they’ve already happened my guess is the club are waiting for offers to come in.

ESPN reporting Utd are open to offers on Martial and Van De Beek, they hope to sell Dalot, Lingard and Periera and are likely to allow Tuanzebe a loan move next season.

If we can get rid of Martial that will be great business. I can't see it with his wage though.

I kind of think Donny needs another chance, especially if Bruno's form continues

I saw this the other day, but it had Martial going to Spurs presumably as a Kane replacement so I didn't think too much of it. Amazing if true though, as it would signal some intent on our part.

(Assuming the cash would go toward somebody else world class, and not just used to fund the Sancho transfer/Floridian malls.)

I dunno on Donny just doesn’t look like he will ever fit in if we get an offer that is close to what we aid I think take it and move on no hard feelings.

My guess is Utd will be bombarded with terrible loan offers for the players we want to sell actually selling will be tough.

Surely we’ve got to get Jones out next season either give him a free or get him on loan.

Few reports today that Southampton are still keen to take Brandon Williams on loan next season.

Seems like a sensible move for him as he's only 20 but it's important that he starts playing more regular first team football.

Chong could be going on loan to Birmingham City next season.

Didn't really make much of an impact on his loan moves last season personally I don't think he looks anywhere close to making it to the level he'll need to reach to break through at United.

Roma reported to be interested in Alex Telles but only on loan.

Makes absolutely no sense to loan him out he’s pretty average but we need him in the squad if he went on loan we’d have to either buy or loan a replacement. Could be that the player wants to leave World Cup in 18 months and he’s dropped out of the international setup so maybe feels a move is needed as he won’t become first choice at Utd based on Shaw’s resurgence.

To me only makes sense as a sale if we can turn a profit on what we paid or use that money to get in a similar quality replacement.

If José wants a full back chuck us some cash for Dalot.

our squad is huge, we need to start shipping players

Periera, Jones, Lingard, Williams, Tuanzebe, Dalot, just off the top of my head. Martial :)

I've read reports saying Trippier thought he'd transfer to us before the Euros. Do you guys think he'd actually be a good buy for us? 30 years old already. It seems strange after we spent 50m on a RB recently.

I honestly forgot we had Telles. Seems like a panic buy that just didn't pan out. But if loan him out, who is Shaw's backup?

I'd rather go for Max Aarons and have two young full backs fighting for the spot.
