Incoming Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has given the green light for 10 Red Devils stars to leave the club this summer in order to trim his squad, according to Daily Mail.
The Dutchman wants the players offloaded this summer and could yet decide to sell captain Harry Maguire.
The former Ajax boss signed a three-year deal at Old Trafford in April and flew into England from Amsterdam earlier this week to start his job of returning the club to its former glory immediately.
Ten Hag will meet the Manchester United squad on Monday for a formal introduction as he looks to kick-start his Old Trafford tenure.
He will oversee a major overhaul this summer and has already identified up to 10 first-team players he expects to leave United.
Ten Hag has reportedly opened the door for Eric Bailly and Phil Jones to leave.
Others are goalkeeper Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata and Lee Grant.
The report further added that Ten Hag will consider getting rid of Manchester United captain Maguire if he’s able to bring in the likes of Ajax’s Jurrien Timber and Lisandro Martinez both linked with moves.
