Manchester United may need to let some players go after revealing their losses following their failure to feature in the Champions League as Darren Fletcher could be the one to make way, Express reports.
Despite being named co-captain, the 30-year-old veteran is finding it hard to keep hold of a regular place in the starting 11 after his lengthy injury spell, making only three starts so far this season.
He could now seen as surplus behind Louis van Gaal’s usual midfield pairing of Daley Blind and Ander Herrera, with Marouane Fellaini as well as Michael Carrick also being used regularly in recent weeks.
With United taking a 10% financial loss due to their lack of European football, chief executive Ed Woodward revealed they might not spend any more money in January and may even need to offload some players.
Fletcher spent 20 years with the Red Devil and will run the course of his current deal at the end of this season as Van Gaal may need to cash in on him instead of seeing him leave for free.
