Manchester United have certainly signalled their intent in the transfer this summer as they aim to overhaul the 12-point gap to rivals Manchester City and win a first Premier League title since 2013.

The Red Devils finally tied up a deal to bring Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford for £73million from Borussia Dortmund after a long-running saga, and have agreed a deal in principle for Real Madrid centre back Raphael Varane in a deal worth £42m.

However, with the ongoing financial effects of Covid-19 on even the biggest clubs' budgets, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need to offload some players before targeting any further signings, with the likes of Leon Goretzka, Eduardo Camavinga and Saul Niguez among those being considered if Paul Pogba leaves for Paris Saint-Germain. 

Here are six players who could be heading for the exit door.  

Phil Jones 

Injury and lack of form has meant that Phil Jones hasn't played since January 2020 for the club

Sportsmail ran a piece on Tuesday explaining that despite Jones' last match for the club coming against Tranmere in the FA Cup on January 26 last year, the 29-year-old has not attracted any interest after falling out of favour under Solskjaer and then picking up a knee injury last summer which he has still not yet recovered from. 

Four centre backs still at the club have featured in the Premier League since Jones' last appearance in the competition and with his contract still with another two years to run, United will be hoping a bidder comes for the beleaguered defender soon, especially since Varane's arrival has pushed Jones further down the pecking order. 

Jesse Lingard

The 28-year-old's career at his boyhood side seemed to be going down a dead end under Solskjaer. 

After having to settle with coming off the bench in the majority of his 40 games in all competitions, the attacking midfielder only featured three times last season - all in cup games - before being shipped out to West Ham on loan.

There, he blossomed under former boss David Moyes, operating as a No 10 and starring regularly with nine goals and five assists in just 16 league games for the Irons to earn them Europa League qualification and force his way into England's initial Euro 2020 squad before failing to make the final cut. 

The fact that he was even considered by Gareth Southgate though showed how far he has come in such a short period of time, although he may be in for a reality check having returned to his parent club. 

Despite being picked by Solskjaer in pre-season and scoring in the 4-2 defeat to QPR, he will find his work cut out starting regularly if the Norwegian persists with a 4-2-3-1
