5 Players who could leave United this summer
With Louis Van Gaal set to ring the changes this summer, here are 5 players destined for the exit door…
Despite signing a long term deal last September to keep him at United until 2018, Nani looks set to leave this summer.
The Portuguese midfielder has spent 8 years at the club, but never fully won round the Old Trafford faithful with his inconsistent performances and being plagued by injuries- which saw him feature only 13 times last season.
Inter Milan are heavily rumoured to land Nani’s signature, although rivals Juventus are also reportedly interested.
A lack of game time and constantly being played out of position could see Shinji Kagawa forcing a move away from United.
Despite being highly rated when he joined from Dortmund 2 years ago, Kagawa has failed to make his mark on the team, making only 38 appearances. With Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata ahead of him in the pecking order for his preferred number 10 role, he may look to move on and rejuvenate his career elsewhere- with a return to Dortmund likely.
Another player who may leave for more first team opportunities is Javier Hernandez, having made just 5 Premier League starts last term.
Now United’s 4th choice striker, Hernandez looked low in confidence and match sharpness last season, missing clear cut chances and struggling to force his way back into the side.
Losing his place in the starting line up for Mexico at the World Cup may be the catalyst which sees him look to force a move away from Old Trafford.
After spending the 2nd half of last season out on loan at Italian side Fiorentina, it looks likely we won’t see Anderson in the red shirt of United again.
Despite showing early promise when he signed from Porto in 2007, Anderson has failed to cement a first team place and has lost his popularity with the fans.
With Ander Herrera’s signing and rumours Van Gaal is after another central midfielder, Anderson’s days at United look numbered.
After a first season to forget, it looks like Marouane Fellaini may not get a second chance to impress under Louis Van Gaal.
The new United manager is reported to have said that he does not rate Fellaini as a Manchester United player, and the Belgian midfielder could now be offloaded for a fraction of the £27.5m United paid for him last summer.
