The club has been having a horrible season and with a rebuild coming up after Sir Jim’s takeover, the may be close to 20 players leaving the club in the summer.

It is only the natural way of things for there to be a major rebuild when a club’s ownership changes, and this will be no different. There may even be a change in the dugout, with ten Hag’s job hanging delicately in the balance.

In fact, the next few weeks till the end of the season will be absolutely crucial in determining where the club goes from here. Erik ten Hag and his boys simply have to deliver the goods and turn around what as been an absolutely abysmal season.

Tyrone Marshall on Manchester Evening News reports that there could be a mammoth exodus of players at the club: the number could even get close to 20 with only 7 assured starters.

He reports that the only safe players include new number 1 Andre Onana.

The Cameroonian shot stopper had an absolute nightmare of a start but has since found his step with calm, assured performances which are what’s needed of a Manchester United keeper.

Some other names that may be safe are Luke Shaw and Lisandro Martínez. The pair have been injured for most of the season, and lack of left-footers on that wing has hurt Manchester United’s build up and progress altogether.

In the midfield, only captain Bruno and young emerging star Kobbie Mainoo may be safe.

You needn’t say much about Bruno: His leadership, commitment, constant availability, output and passion for the club is rare to find.

We have to give ten Hag credit for thrusting young Mainoo into the fray, as his performances have been nothing short of exemplary: well beyond his years. Word of advice to the incoming regime: build the midfield around the 18-year-old.

On the attacking front, only Hojlund and Garnacho are guaranteed starters.

Rasmus Hojlund had a slow start, but he has settled well into the shirt and just maybe has that #9 role on lock for years.

Youngster Alejandro has also impressed with his performances from the left and from the right as well. At only 19, he is one for the future and beyond with limitless potential.
