Manchester United transfer rumours: Who could leave this summer? Rating every possible exit

Sports Mole rounds up every player linked with leaving Manchester United this summer, and rates the chances of each possible outgoing actually happening.

A number of players are expected to be on their way out of Manchester United this summer, with the club making huge changes under the guidance of new minority shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

There will be departures on free transfers, while players under contract will also be moved on, with the Red Devils bidding to put together a squad capable of being challengers for the major trophies once again.

Here, Sports Mole takes a closer look at which players could depart the 20-time English champions before the end of the summer transfer window.

Age: 32
Position: Central midfielder
Rumoured asking price: £30m
Transfer value: £17m
Career appearances: 586
Career goals: 59

Honours


  • Copa Sao Paulo de Futebol Junior (1): 2010

  • Copa Sudamericana (1): 2012

  • La Liga (3): 2016-17, 2019-20, 2021-22

  • Copa del Rey (1): 2013-14

  • Spanish Super Cup (3): 2017, 2019-20, 2021-22

  • UEFA Champions League (5): 2013-14, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2021-22

  • FIFA Club World Cup (3): 2016, 2017, 2018

  • EFL Cup (1): 2022-23

  • FA Cup (1): 2023-24

  • South American Under-17 Championship (1): 2009

  • FIFA Under-20 World Cup (1): 2011

  • South American Under-20 Championship (1): 2011

  • Casemiro excelled for Man United during the 2022-23 campaign, but he struggled to show his best form in 2023-24, and a departure for the Brazil international this summer is probable.

    A switch to another European team is unlikely, with the player said to have turned down Bayern Munich, but a number of clubs from Saudi Arabia are said to be interested, with Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal believed to be at the head of the queue for his signature.

    Recent speculation, though, is linking Casemiro with a move to Fenerbahce.

    Our verdict: Likely


    Jadon Sancho

    Age: 24
    Position: Attacker
    Rumoured asking price: £50m
    Transfer value: £25.6m
    Career appearances: 243
    Career goals: 65

    Honours


  • DFB-Pokal (1): 2020-21

  • DFF-Supercup (1): 2019

  • EFL Cup (1): 2022-23

  • FIFA Under-17 World Cup (1): 2017

  • Sancho spent the second half of the 2023-24 campaign on loan at Borussia Dortmund after the breakdown of his relationship with Man United head coach Erik ten Hag.

    BVB are keen to sign the 24-year-old on a permanent basis this summer, but there have been claims that Man United want £40m for his signature, with the situation currently at a standstill.

    Juventus are the latest club to be linked with his services.

    Our verdict: Likely


    Mason Greenwood

    Age: 22
    Position: Attacker
    Rumoured asking price: £40m
    Transfer value: £12.8m
    Career appearances: 166
    Career goals: 46

    Greenwood is unlikely to represent Man United again, with the Red Devils said to be hopeful of selling their academy product for around £40m during the summer market.

    Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus are among the teams to be linked with the 22-year-old, but a recent report claimed that the forward wants to return to Getafe for the 2024-25 campaign, having impressed while on loan at the La Liga club during the recent season.

    A return to the Spanish outfit is highly unlikely, though, with Benfica the latest club to have allegedly joined the race for his signature.

    Valencia, meanwhile, are thought to have recently launched a £25m bid.

    Lazio are also being heavily linked with Greenwood, while a recent report claimed that Juventus might be willing to offer Federico Chiesa to the Red Devils as part of a swap deal.

    Our verdict: Very likely


    Donny van de Beek

    Age: 27
    Position: Central midfielder
    Rumoured asking price: £8m
    Transfer value: £4.3m
    Career appearances: 287
    Career goals: 52

    Honours


  • Eredivisie (1): 2018-19

  • KNVB Cup (1): 2018-19

  • Johan Cruyff Shield (1): 2019

  • Van de Beek spent the second half of last season on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt, but the Bundesliga outfit have decided against bringing him in on a permanent basis this summer.

    The 27-year-old is therefore heading back to Man United, but he has no future at Old Trafford and will almost certainly be sold this summer, with his agent recently hinting at a move to Spain, Italy or France.

    Our verdict: Very likely


    Harry Maguire

    Age: 31
    Position: Centre-back
    Rumoured asking price: £30m
    Transfer value: £15.3m
    Career appearances: 539
    Career goals: 32

    Honours


  • Championship playoffs (1): 2016

  • EFL Cup (1): 2022-23

  • FA Cup (1): 2023-24

  • There remains speculation surrounding Maguire's future at Old Trafford, with the 20-time English champions believed to be willing to listen to offers for him during the summer market.

    West Ham United are said to have agreed a £30m deal for the England international last year, but Maguire turned down a switch to the London Stadium.

    Maguire regained the trust of his manager during the recent season, but if a suitable offer arrives, he could potentially be on his way out of Old Trafford.

    Our verdict: Unlikely


    Aaron Wan-Bissaka

    Age: 26
    Position: Right-back
    Rumoured asking price: £20m
    Transfer value: £17m
    Career appearances: 236
    Career goals: 2

    Honours


  • EFL Cup (1): 2022-23

  • FA Cup (1): 2023-24

  • Wan-Bissaka benefitted from Man United's injury problems to feature on a regular basis during the 2023-24 campaign, but he is being tipped to leave Old Trafford this summer.

    Crystal Palace are believed to be considering re-signing the right-back, and there is a chance that he could be used as part of a swap deal with Red Devils target Michael Olise.

    Meanwhile, a recent report claimed that Galatasaray are keen on the defender, who could seemingly be given the chance to continue his career in Turkey.

    Our verdict: Very likely


    Bruno Fernandes

    Age: 29
    Position: Central midfielder
    Rumoured asking price: £60m
    Transfer value: £59.6m
    Career appearances: 523
    Career goals: 163

    Honours


  • Taca de Portugal (1): 2018-19

  • Taca de Liga (2): 2017-18, 2018-19

  • FA Cup (1): 2023-24

  • EFL Cup (1): 2022-23

  • UEFA Nations League (1): 2018-19

  • Fernandes's future is currently the subject of speculation, with Bayern Munich believed to be determined to secure his signature during this summer's transfer window.

    There have been claims that the 29-year-old is unsettled at Old Trafford, but it would be a huge surprise to see him leave the 20-time English champions.

    Fernandes could potentially be in line for a new deal at Old Trafford, with Man United viewing him as central to their plans moving forward.

    Any decision over the attacker will not be made until after Euro 2024, with Portugal already being confirmed as one of the last-16 outfits at the competition in Germany.

    Our verdict: Very unlikely


    Marcus Rashford

    Manchester United's Marcus Rashford celebrates scoring against Manchester City on March 3, 2024© Reuters

    Age: 26
    Position: Attacker
    Rumoured asking price: £70m
    Transfer value: £51.1m
    Career appearances: 402
    Career goals: 131

    Honours


  • FA Cup (2): 2015-16, 2023-24

  • EFL Cup (2): 2016-17, 2022-23

  • Community Shield (1): 2016

  • UEFA Europa League (1): 2016-17

  • Rashford struggled for form during the 2023-24 campaign, and his issues at club level meant that he was overlooked for a spot in the England squad for Euro 2024.

    Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with a big-money move for the forward this summer, but it is very difficult to imagine the French outfit coming up with a suitable offer, while a potential switch to Arsenal is even more unlikely.

    Rashford is said to be determined to stay at Old Trafford and show his best form next season, and he has another four years left to run on a lucrative contract with the Red Devils.

    In a recent poll conducted by Sports Mole, more than half of Man United fans said that they would sell Rashford this summer.

    Our verdict: Unlikely


    Antony

    Age: 24
    Position: Attacker
    Rumoured asking price: £35m
    Transfer value: £21.3m
    Career appearances: 216
    Career goals: 42

    Honours


  • Eredivisie (2): 2020-21, 2021-22

  • KNVB Cup (1): 2020-21

  • FA Cup (1): 2023-24

  • EFL Cup (1): 2022-23

  • Antony has struggled at Man United since his big-money move from Ajax, and he only managed one Premier League goal during the 2023-24 campaign.

    The 24-year-old is being linked with a switch away from Old Trafford, but there are not believed to have been any offers at this stage, and the Red Devils could find it difficult to shift him this summer unless they are prepared to accept a cut-price offer.

    Our verdict: Unlikely


    Christian Eriksen

    Age: 32
    Position: Central midfielder
    Rumoured asking price: £10m
    Transfer value: £6.8m
    Career appearances: 610
    Career goals: 113

    Honours

  • Eredivisie (3) 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13

  • KNVB Cup (1): 2009-10

  • Johan Cruyff Shield (1): 2013

  • Serie A (1): 2020-21

  • FA Cup (1): 2023-24

  • EFL Cup (1): 2022-23

  • Eriksen impressed for Man United during the 2022-23 campaign but had to accept a limited role during the recent season, and he is being linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

    The 32-year-old is unlikely to be short of interest, and it is probable that the Denmark international will be on the move in a cut-price deal during the summer market.

    Eriksen has allegedly told close friends that he is expecting to depart in the current window.

    Our verdict: Likely


    Kobbie Mainoo

    Age: 19
    Position: Central midfielder
    Rumoured asking price: £70m
    Transfer value: £42.3m
    Career appearances: 35
    Career goals: 5

    Honours

  • FA Cup (1): 2023-24

  • Barcelona are allegedly interested in signing Mainoo this summer, with the club said to be willing to offer Raphinha plus £8.5m for the 19-year-old.

    However, it is highly unlikely that Man United will entertain any offers for the England international, who made 32 appearances for the Red Devils during the 2023-24 campaign.

    Mainoo is thought to be one of six untouchable players in the current first-team squad.

    A recent report claimed that Man United are currently relaxed when it comes to Mainoo's future, with the midfielder having a contract at Old Trafford until June 2027.

    However, discussions over a new and improved contract with Ten Hag's side could potentially be accelerated later this year, with Mainoo expected to receive a significant pay rise.

    Our verdict: Very unlikely



    Victor Lindelof

    Age: 29
    Position: Centre-back
    Rumoured asking price: £25m
    Transfer value: £12.7m
    Career appearances: 479
    Career goals: 10

    Honours

  • Division 1 Norra (1): 2010

  • Primeira Liga (3): 2013-14, 2015-16, 2016-17

  • Taca de Portugal (2): 2013-14, 2016-17

  • Taca da Liga (1): 2015-16

  • Supertaca Candido de Oliveira (1): 2015

  • FA Cup (1): 2023-24

  • EFL Cup (1): 2022-23

  • UEFA European Under-21 Championship (1): 2015

  • Man United are believed to be willing to sell Lindelof for the right price during this summer's transfer window, with Fenerbahce allegedly showing an interest in the Sweden international.

    Lindelof has made 259 appearances for the Red Devils since his arrival from Benfica in 2017.

    Raphael Varane's departure has already been confirmed, and Man United are said to be willing to listen to offers for Lindelof, with the club expected to bring in two new central defenders.

    Our verdict: Likely



    Facundo Pellistri

    Age: 22
    Position: Attacker
    Rumoured asking price: £15m
    Transfer value: £6.7m
    Career appearances: 114
    Career goals: 5

    Pellistri could allegedly be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer, with Brazilian outfit Flamengo said to be keen to secure his signature in the current market.

    The Uruguay international spent the second half of last season on loan at Granada, and the 22-year-old could now leave the English giants on a permanent basis in the coming weeks.

    Pellistri has made 24 appearances for Man United in all competitions but is yet to find the back of the net.

    Our verdict: Very likely
