• The upcoming transfer window is a vital one for Manchester United's future
  • Multiple players are already expected to leave when their contracts end on June 30
  • The club needs to move more players in order to create room for Erik ten Hag's vision

Change is coming to Old Trafford as Manchester United will see many familiar names leaving the club once their contracts expire on June 30, but the opening of the transfer window on Friday, June 10 is going to be of utmost importance.

Veteran Red Devils like Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Edinson Cavani are but some of the names who have already started the process of saying their farewells to the club and its fans.

However, more departures are needed in order to fully retool the club that recorded its lowest ever English Premier League points total last season.

Steven Railston of the Manchester Evening News shared seven names whom he believes should also be on the transfer list for the Red Devils.

The list includes the following names and how much each player is set to make in the upcoming season:

  • Dean Henderson, goalkeeper (£5.2 million or roughly $6.5 million)
  • Axel Tuanzebe, center-back/right-back (£3.4 million or roughly $4.2 million)
  • Phil Jones, center-back (£3.9 million or roughly $4.8 million)
  • Anthony Martial, forward (£13 million or roughly $16.2 million)
  • Aaron Wan-Bissaka, full-back (£4.6 million or roughly $5.8 million)
  • Andreas Pereira, midfielder (£1.6 million or roughly $1.9 million)

Seeing Henderson leave the club should be a no-brainer at this point as it has become apparent that David de Gea is still the no. 1 man between the sticks for Manchester United.

The academy graduate in Tuanzebe has failed to live up to expectations and will likely be transferred this summer despite his contract running up until 2023.

Jones and Martial, while beloved by fans to different degrees, need to find life beyond the hallowed halls of Old Trafford as the club looks to the future.

As for Wan-Bissaka and Pereira, new manager Erik ten Hag may find a place for them within the club, especially the latter after news around the rumor mill suggested that the coach will have use for his skills.

The disappointing season for the storied club and its fans has mercifully come to an end, and the offseason that now looms over their heads will be an important one as they look to contend for the Premier League title.

The names listed above have a combined salary of £31.7 million ($39.6 million) going into the 2022-23 season, money which they can reallocate to players that will fit ten Hag’s vision.

It is currently unknown which players ten Hag has his eyes on this summer, but a possible list has since emerged.
