Following the dramatic, but ultimately disappointing 2-2 draw against strugglers Fulham, David Moyes has been reported as willingly to sell ten Manchester United players the door in the transfer window.
According to Goal: "Nemanja Vidic, whose exit this summer was confirmed on Thursday, is set to be joined by Rio Ferdinand, Rafael, Nani, Anderson, Patrice Evra, Shinji Kagawa, Alexander Buttner on the list of players that the United manager will tell to look for other clubs over the coming months."
With only three of the aforementioned (Vidic, Rafael and Evra) playing against Fulham yesterday, it is apparent that Moyes plans to reshape the first team, relegating many players who are currently first team regulars to the bench, whilst those currently on the bench (such as the remaining of the aforementioned seven) will be consigned to leave.
It is just was well Goal also revealed Moyes has a £150 million warchest to help him land his lofty targets, who are thought to be three defenders from the following: Luke Shaw (Southampton), Ezequiel Garay (Benfica), Davide Astori (Calgari), Seamus Coleman (Everton) and Eliaquim Mangala (Porto); as well as Bayern Munich playmaker Tono Kroos.
In the article, it is stated: "David de Gea and Jonny Evans have impressed Moyes, while it is hoped Phil Jones and Chris Smalling will soon prove they are worth the £24m United paid for them."
With the futures of Manchester United forwards far from settled - Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney (contract issues), Robin van Persie (dislikes the way Moyes is running the club), Javier Hernandez (upset at the little playing time he gets) and Nani (not a first team regular and has many suitors), it appears Manchester United will hold the key to how clubs all around the world conduct their affairs in the summer.
