Louis Van Gaal is preparing to sell FIVE players this month. After Man United’s tour of the US, the new boss will sit down with his players and inform them on their futures at the club.
Express Sport is reporting that FIVE players will be told that they can leave Old Trafford. Those players are Nani, Javi Hernandez, Shinji Kagawa, Marouane Fellaini and Anderson. Six players have already left the Red Devils this summer, with Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra moving to Serie A, Rio Ferdinand signing for QPR and fringe players Alex Buttner, Federico Macheda and Bebe also departing. Ryan Giggs also retired to become assistant coach.
Van Gaal said about the future of his players: “I shall make judgements after this tour. I have let all the players play and I know now more [about them] than before the tour.
“Now also it is a little bit soon to judge but in football you have to judge. You have to give a chance to the player to make a transfer when I see that his prospects to play are not so high.
“You have to say it in advance because it’s too late after August 31.”
With 6 players already leaving the club, it now looks like the total could become 11 before the month is out.
